Today, UniTO participates in more than 500 formal agreements with universities in 80 countries around the world and several international networks. Each institution shall be responsible for the expenditure incurred by its staff under the Agreement. The agreement, which involves the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Bologna and the Viterbi School of Engineering of the University of Southern California, is a further step towards a continued commitment to the internationalization and excellence of our curriculum. In the first phase of the implementation of the contract, Professor Enrico Paolini, from the Department of Electrical Engineering at our university, offered the Introduction to Spacecraft Communication course to UsC students who are following an astronaut engineering path. The course was organized in e-learning format between February and May 2015. Possible activities under a bilateral agreement: A memorandum of understanding is a document that sets out the broad understanding of the parties for the essential elements that will be agreed later. A confidentiality agreement ensures that neither party may disclose sensitive information about the proposed cooperation without the agreement of the other party. An exclusivity agreement prevents the parties from entering into negotiations with another institution with a view to cooperation such as that under discussion. The three agreements do not have to be concluded at every cooperation.
In many cases, the three agreements can be incorporated into a document, although the institutions, when choosing this option, are aware of which parts of the agreement have the force of law and which do not. F. Agreement on structured mobility for student exchanges with authorization of a double degree: agreement that offers the possibility of entering an international course through an outsourcing mobility program that leads to a double/multiple degree (bachelor, master, a long cycle). A. Memorandum of Understanding: cooperation agreement of general interest signed by the University of Turin and one or more foreign institutions on the proposal of the Rector, the Vice-Rector for Internationalisation or at institutional meetings. The aim is to establish initial institutional contact in order to strengthen cultural and scientific relations and to lay the foundations for compliance with cooperation agreements. . . .
