Project "School – Lincean Academy"

The University of Milan, in cooperation with the Lincean Academy and the Istituto Lombardo Accademia di Scienze e Lettere, organizes refresher courses and workshops for humanities and science teachers in schools of all levels.

The initiative is part of the national project "The Lincean Academy for a new school pedagogy: a national network", conducted in agreement with the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) to encourage the use of new teaching methods, which can promote learning as well as synergies between schools and high cultural institutions in the local area.


The Milan hub is part of the project for a new school pedagogy, a national network coordinated and organized by the Lincean Academy through its foundation for schools ("I Lincei per la scuola").

The network includes 23 hubs covering at least 30 cities throughout the country.

Duration of courses

Over 25 hours across at least 5/6 meetings, including lectures and workshop activities in the classroom and online with tutors.


The courses are free.


You can register online through the Lincei Scuola website and the MIUR's S.O.F.I.A.
