VIU News

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Article 25 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU which officially recognizes “the right of the elderly to lead a life of dignity and independence and to participate in social and cultural life” (right which was not present in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), EICA is pleased to join the #OldLivesMatter campaign, an exceptional and unprecedented mobilization of the global geriatric and gerontological community to defend the rights of the elderly.

Launched by the French Society of Geriatrics and Gerontology (Société Française de Gériatrie et Gérontologie – SFGG), with the support of 42 other organizations from 29 different countries, it intends to fight against anti-old racism and raise awareness among citizens, media and institutions.

Prepare your future, fight ageism


Dear students,

We hope you are looking forward to starting your studies at VIU during the 1st Semester 2020-2021. 
We start on Monday, September 7, 2020, with our Virtual Orientation Week.

Safety protocols and emergency planning are being finalized with the support of VIU’s Health and Safety consultants and will be published on this website, and sent to you by email before courses start on campus. The protocols will provide for safe access to VIU including the classrooms and offices.

In the meantime, please make sure that you are up-to-date about deadlines for course registration, which courses will be available only online, how to sign up for Virtual Exchange, accommodation information, how to get a travel card in Venice, and so on.

We are looking for a staff member to work in the Globalization Program office at Venice International University. This will be a temporary position.

The effects of the Covid-19 crisis are still influencing many aspects of our everyday lives. Although there are is still uncertainty hovering over the coming months, the education sector is proving to be resilient.  The VIU staff is working hard to ensure that the next semester of the Globalization Program is as much as possible as it used to be, but with added flexibility for students and professors, while introducing innovation to the teaching. 

The project has published the cross-border action plan for improving maritime and multimodal freight transport. The plan includes guidelines, priority measures, and KPIs that will be tested in pilot actions starting in September 2020. This cross border strategy was developed through the analysis of best practices in ICT tools and policies, territorial needs assessments, and training opportunities for the project partners.
