The project “Univr Fashion Week” (565055-EPP-1-2015-1-IT-EPPJMO-MODULE) is co-funded by the European Union as a Jean Monnet Module 2015-2018 within the Erasmus+ Programme given its relevance in the framework of the EU policies. The project envisages the organisation of three editions of a Summer School on the fashion industry in the European Union that consists of lectures addressing fashion-related issues examined from a legal and economic perspective. The course is also supported by other scientific activities, including the organisation of conferences, the collection and online publication of didactic materials, the publication of a periodic newsletter, open access articles on the online journal Papers di diritto europeo (edited by the European Documentation Centre of Verona), a selected relevant bibliography, and, at the completion of the project lifetime, a policy brief.
The project “Univr Fashion Week”, through the realisation of the Summer School and the related scientific activities, aims at further promoting a specific field of study of European Union law and intends to enhance the mutual interaction between academia and entrepreneurs involved in the fashion industry with particular regard to legal and economic aspects. Following a cross-sectorial and multidisciplinary approach, innovative study perspectives are developed. This not only allows to expand the areas of European Union studies and research within the Law Department of the University of Verona, but also to foster skills and professional experience of the teaching staff members on specific topics of fashion law and economics. The project thus provides for an academic added value.
In order to fulfil the objectives of the project, a monitoring activity is envisaged during the whole project lifetime. This is based on the creation and distribution of questionnaires to the participants, which are actively involved in the self-evaluation of the acquired competences and the assessment of the events’ arrangement and delivery. In addition, periodic reports (in English language) on the Project activities and results are elaborated periodically.
