“Lezioni di Campus” is an annual orientation event organized by the University of Calabria, addressed to the students attending the last year of the secondary schools in Calabria and in the surrounding regions. The event usually lasts one week, during which students can visit the Campus and have a first approach to the university life.

The aim of “Lezioni di Campus” is to provide students with all the information they need about the educational offer and the services available in the Campus in order to help them making a conscious decision about their future university studies. The 2012 edition of the event took place from February 27 to March 3 in the buildings of the university sport centre, where each Faculty set up its own stand in order to provide useful information to the incoming students.

More than 8000 students were welcomed during the week, confirming the great success of this edition of Lezioni di Campus. Also the Faculty of Engineering was present with a stand  where professors and PhD students belonging to the different departments answered students' questions and gave information about courses and exams.

As PhD students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and UNICAL researchers involved in the INTERACTIVE project, Mariano Carpinelli and Giovanni De Gaetano took part to “Lezioni di Campus” and exploited the visibility of the event to disclose information about the FP7 Marie Curie IAPP action in general, and about INTERACTIVE in particular. They were joined in this activity by Ing. Francesco Cosco, from G&G. Several posters describing the project were placed inside and outside the stand of the Faculty of Engineering and brochures were distributed among the students, who were informed about key topics of the project. A great interest in the automotive field was shown by students visiting the part of the stand dedicated to Mechanical Engineering. Indeed they made several questions about vehicle dynamic simulations and they were informed about the close collaboration between UNICAL and the other partners of the INTERACTIVE project. The event was definitely an excellent opportunity to spread information about the project and to encourage young students to make their passion in the automotive field a great career opportunity.
