Living in Torino
Torino is a leading centre for higher education and research, housing some of the major academic and research institutions in Italy. The city was also chosen by United Nations for its Staff College and as a site for the International Labour Organization Training Centre.
As explained in the “Fees and Scholarships” section of this website, TOMideast will provide accommodation for the 10 applicants who obtain one Freetorino scholarship.
All other participants will have to organize their stay in Torino independently. The Summer School office will do its best to help any successful applicant find adequate accommodation in town.
