Student and Alumni Association (SAA)

The Student and Alumni Association (SAA) of IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca was constituted in 2016 to foster and develop interpersonal cultural and professional relationships between the School’s students and alumni through a network of people, competences and experiences. The Association's goal for the next three years is to launch new and various activities to valorize and promote, in both national and international spheres, the School's scientific excellence and research reputation, the welfare of the School and its members, and to create a network that will actively support the job placement services by capturing synergies and reinforcing shared values.

☛ 1st SAA Annual Event 

Lucca, June 7th and 8th 2019

This 1st Annual Event provided an excellent opportunity to gather and build up an active community, to exchange ideas, to share career pathways and to visit, together with friends and family, the places that welcomed students and alumni during their doctoral life.

In an Executive Council held just before the SAA event, Davide Bacciu was elected the first President of the Association. Davide, who participated in doctoral cycle XX (Computer Science track), is now an Assistant Professor at the University of Pisa. In the following years he will lead the Association through the setup of its organizational structure and the new version of the Statute, which will allow the SAA to have a more suitable legal structure.
