LAREM is a unique centre for economics and management studies in the province of Gorizia.
The laboratory aims to put the University in contact with the local territory, keeping an eye on Europe and the neighbouring countries.
It stands as a joint venture between public speakers, local authorities and institutions, companies and students. It’s a good opportunity to approach the world of work, to experience personally – but still with the help of professors and researchers – the importance of public relations and business communication: an effective way to get today closer to tomorrow. Research and consulting projects, workshops and conventions, international activities, internships and thesis are the areas where the LAREM laboratory operates. Professors bring their professional knowledge and experiences to guide their students towards what will be their professional environment by integrating cross communication between firms and University: endless, unique opportunities.


SME Leaders & Sustainability: Deliberative Engagement

LAREM participates together with other 8 European partners to the SME-DE Project, founded by the EU, which will build a targeted, demand-driven Executive Programme, consisting of education and business support tools, which will help SME intermediary leaders to be more effectively engaged in addressing longer-term issues of sustainability.
