Regional network in Lombardia for international cooperation and development

When cross culture reaches successful goals about contents mediated with events, researches and creativity it’s time to consolidate these visions and interests on mutual and concrete base. That’s exactly the way we’re approaching this aim with our international contest called Switch on Your creativity: with official patronage of Milano Expo 2015 and technical support of partnered companies and sponsors we launched the special award called “International Dialogue among Cultures 2013 – 2014”. We involved young artists from Japan, Korea, China, Italy and other european countries, making them protagonists of our event introducing personal artistic vision on topic of sustainable development  in the city of Expo.

Even if we guaranteed scholarships for winners of the first edition of the contest, now we’re getting busy on promotion of their artworks on regional scene, aware that through culture and arts is possible to accomunate mutual projects and skills to consolidate new operative sphere for the territory. As follows some projects announced briefly during last vernissage of our exhibition held in Lodi at Punto Enel: main partner of our promotional agenda developed for topics about Expo and International Dialogue.

English 4 Expo: special intensive training program for operators and professionals based on exercises for daily conversation during the year of the expo. We really trust that international vision useful to achieve concrete results on international markets or through international potential target can be improved only with high level’s skills on communication and listening comprehension. With mother tongue experts of communication we’re going to present 1 month intensive program 4 hours x week. The project is managed in cooperation with C.U.P.I. and Asian Studies Group Italia as twinned centre in charge of involvement of US trainers in cooperation with IES Abroad Foundation.

When Asia runs we must follow it… Launching ASG Torino new project in Piemonte

I’m really happy to start new year introducing something of very important for professional and personal commitment in Italy on cultures and languages from East Asia: after 1 year we’re really proud to announce the official calendar of introductory classes for chinese, japanese and korean languages in Turin.

In tight cooperation with Yoshin Ryu, our main partner for cultural and scientific activities in Piemonte Region, we’re going to offer to the territory  high quality’s services about trainings, studies exchanges, internship opportunities and consulting for international cooperation between Europe,  in particular Italy, and East Asia (Japan, China and Korea first of all).

Strategically the partnership in Turin between Asian Studies Group and Yoshin Ryu means to create common environment to boost mutual activities connecting two important poles for our centre (Milan and Turin) for that concerns projects about EXPO 2015 which we’re already hard working about.

We would really to intensify opportunities for a well structured platform that, from Turin and Milan, will involve  professionals, university students, institutions and foundations to cooperate on international projects that could start to be concrete dimension for mutual co-working ventures.

EXPO 2015 will be for sure a incredible occasion to facilitate international dialogue’s opportunities and our mission will consist on reinforce cultural and social perception about the meaning of such dialogue and what kind of professional involvement it could bring for future generations.

On doing that we’re going to involve C.U.P.I. the Centre for Union of International Perspectives that is going to manage and focus with high attention on social / cultural / business involvement about international opportunities for development’s opportunities on the international scene. CUPI starts from Lombardia Region due its direct involvement in some territorial projects connected to EXPO that will take place on 2015 in Milan but represents already a concrete incitement for networking’s promotion and cross-level’s cooperation among commercial players, institutions and key operators.

When we talk about networking’s opportunities we always involve our partners from Asia and in particular that is real good way to boost also the activity of EU Networking Centre in Kobe, representative office of Asian Studies Group Italia that offers parallel solutions to university students, professionals and organizations in Japan to create

As Studies Centre, first of all we want to be sustainable! that’s why we’re going to start with free of charge introductory classes for japanese, chinese and languages.

Regular courses will start until the end of january and will continue for 2 quarterly sessions till summer when as usual we’ll introduce summer intensive classes and summer study travels in Japan China and Korea.

As Asian Studies Group is doing from 2006 in other branches (like Milan, Rome, Padova) our courses in Turin will train students to pass international proficiency’s tests about japanese, chinese and korean languages (JLPT – HSK – TOPIK) exactly as universities and academic courses are used to do.

We want to offer  concrete tools following sustainable prices with well trained mother tongue staff and programs arranged with exclusive contents and materials by our Centre.  For korean language for example, ASG started to edit one year ago special edition of textbook in italian language with grammar section and exercises and at the moment we’re first centre in Italy specialized on management of structured didactic levels for korean languages according with specific contents edited by internal scientific group.

We are ready for this new and important venture in Turin – For further info asgtorino@asianstudiesgroup.net

Sono davvero felice di iniziare l’anno introducendo qualcosa di davvero importante per me che opero con dedizione personale e quotidiana nella promozione delle lingue e delle attività interculturali a tema Asia orientale sul territorio italiano: l’inaugurazione di corsi introduttivi di lingue orientali nella città di Torino.

In stretta collaborazione con l’Associazione Yoshin Ryu, nostro partner principale per quanto concerne attività culturali e di spessore scientifico su tematiche di orientalistica per la Regione Piemonte, andiamo a presentare servizi di alto livello per tutto ciò che concerne formazione linguistica e culturale, opportunità di scambio e di viaggi studio, consulenza per rilocalizzazione professionale fra Europa e in particolari modo Italia e Asia orientale (Cina Giappone e Korea)

Strategicamente la collaborazione fra Yoshin Ryu e la nostra Asian Studies Group mira a creare un hub comune e ben strutturato per progetti che uniscano in ottica EXPO 2015 due poli di principale importanza quali Torino e Milano.

L’obiettivo è davvero di creare una base di collaborazione concreta che miri a coinvolgere studenti, professionisti, istituzioni e organizzazioni su temi di cooperazione internazionale che divengano poi occasioni reali di sviluppo per generazioni future nel dialogo comune che avvicini operatori e mercati. EXPO 2015 rappresenta una frontiera concreta di sviluppo di parametri di confronto e di relazione anche con interlocutori apparentemente e geograficamente distanti, avvicinati nell’occasione dell’esposizione internazionale da una contingenza di ricerca e di condivisione di contenuti.

Nel fare ciò non mancheremo di coinvolgere l’attività del CUPI, il Centro per l’Unione delle Prospettive Internazionali del territorio che ha iniziato di recente a raccogliere proposte di sviluppo e di confronto sul tema EXPO principalmente in Regione Lombardia avvicinando operatori diversificati e valorizzandone apporti eterogenei con finalità di networking e sviluppo relazionale.

Inoltre nell’inaugurare l’attività di ASG Torino, Centro Studi Orientali del Piemonte in collaborazione con Yoshin Ryu non mancheremo di coinvolgere direttamente interlocutori dall’Asia orientale già attivi nella collaborazione con Asian Studies Group Italia, come per il caso dell’EU Networking Centre di Kobe, ufficio di rappresentanza che viceversa dirige prospettive di scambio internazionale, rilocalizzazione professionale, studio e ricerca su Europa nei confronti di utenti giapponesi.

Anche nell’attività di centro studi però vogliamo per prima cosa offrire percorsi di studio che siano sostenibili! Ecco da qui l’avvio di corsi introduttivi gratuiti per la lingua cinese, giapponese e coreana che siano di preludio all’avvio dei due trimestri didattici regolari finalizzati all’acquisizione delle certificazioni internazionali di lingua (JLPT – HSK – TOPIK, obiettivi che Asian Studies Group persegue da anni sulle altre sedi di Milano, Roma e Padova) come già proprio di molteplici corsi universitari.

Offrire strumenti concreti per un apprendimento di alto livello ad un costo sostenibile, ecco la sfida principale del nostro centro che senza minimizzare l’attenzione ai contenuti didattici si interessa di editare direttamente da diversi anni moltissimi dei libri di testo attraverso un comitato scientifico interno. Libri che offrono così testimonianza di un percorso didattico ben strutturato e funzionale a proporre un valore aggiunto e di assistenza continuativa al miglioramento delle capacità linguistiche esercitate. Per la lingua coreana, per esempio, siamo attualmente il primo centro in Italia di profilo extra-accademico ad editare direttamente libri di testo in italiano che prevedano sezioni di grammatica ed esercizi funzionali alla suddivisione in trimestri studio secondo metodo Asian Studies Group.

Siamo ormai davvero pronti per questa importante e nuova avventura a Torino. Per info e iscrizioni asgtorino@asianstudiesgroup.net

Introducing new Centre for International Perspectives: focusing on heart of international scenario Milan Expo 2015

As advisor for companies that are really looking towards international dimension to relaunch their businesses I’m pretty familiar with the importance that such dynamics on operating as international player can represent for development and production of SME.

Then, if we’re talking about italian contingent situation, in particular if we consider the perspective that actually productive policies and central executive government and local administration are providing for the common good of our national economic players, I think that immediately you’ll agree with me about the high value’s content that it could be represented by introducing free and inter structured platform among sector-operators and professionals to boost international effects into national markets, always looking forward to provide cross-social education and training about the meaning of such involvement for well framed comparison managed on international scenario.

international perspectives

No lobbies or real-politic’s games. Just concrete needs to build up network of efficient players that will make on sharing tools, vision and cooperation to develop diversified projects that will concern the relaunch of sectors, territories and marketing strategies on international dimension: welcome to C.U.P.I – Centre for Union of International Perspectives.

Let’s check together the presentation of CUPI following some important aspects:

Ritaglio CUPI English

What is C.U.P.I.?

Working board aimed to operate with well framed dialogue about the topic of internationalization’s of economic subjects from specific territories. First of all structured with joint cooperation of associations, sector-workers, professionals, representatives of categories, common citizens associated by interest on valorizing high profile’s dynamics for that concerns perspectives of international promotion of their activity; everybody joins the board with deep awareness about the importance of sharing results and aims to make mutual perspectives more concrete and functional into sustainable development’s frame.

Which aims?

To guide the territory towards concrete proposals for the relaunch of working opportunities, education and research’s development for an high value’s  emancipation about international dialogue, reinforced by exchange experiences and professional comparisons collected in co-working atmosphere with well framed social cooperation’s activities. These operations will be also useful to create common consideration about the topic of international dynamics and international events that could bring more opportunities for the benefit of territory and players.

Which tools?

Board for operative dialogue about concrete projects of main importance under economic and institutional aspects (like EXPO 2015 and following editions, international fairs and seminars, EU funds and sustainable development’s opportunities for european SME, business tours and business missions, academical researches, feasibility studies applied to operative strategie for market entry’s dynamics)

Shared tools panel structured among supporters and members of C.U.P.I. with agreement to make more easy and sustainable the access to services form common goals and perspectives. comune.

Analysis and research activities to boost training opportunities and educational platform for social aims. Such activity represents concrete base to improve social participation and civil involvement into international dynamics

 Where does it operate?

C.U.P.I. represents a long time highly “felt” and discussed project. As working board among professionals and organizations, it takes place in Milan and it embraces operators almost from the area Padano – Veneta, but it is already collecting energies and proposals from foreign partners and associations. In particular the Association that I manage as President and Director, Asian Studies Group well represents the cross cultural “soul” which we want to approach for example operators from East Asia – In tight connection we have already introduced the activity of EU Networking Centre in Japan from Kobe, and some consulting companies that operates on internationalization’s of SME on foreign markets, both EU and not EU markets. In particular in Bologna we are already working hard with Internazionalizza S.r.l. for that concerns some companies in that area and they are approaching Japan, China and Korea,  and recently we’ve started to collect some contributions and proposals from GN Lex – legal firm with hq in Milan and operative branch in Shanghai. In Milan we well know the activity of CMEX China Milan Equity Exchange and Carone and Partners Legal firm which we’re used to consult frequently for some issues in behalf of our C.U.P.I.’s members. Recently we’re also cooperating with AITA – International Association for development of Advanced Technologies with hq in Rome with recent branch in Milan to assist some projects during Milan EXPO 2015.

In particular,  concrete board for cooperation in behalf of key local sectors during Milan EXPO 2015 is one of our first high working points which we’ve introduced recently the activity of our group. ‘Cause in Milan operators, associations, professionals and companies are already working towards right and effective mood for the international event, we think that some borders- area like Province of Lodi, Province of Pavia and Brescia, Bergamo, Monza etc (and I’m not talking about local administration as politic entities..) should create more intense network of projects to boost the opportunity the Expo will bring us towards their local operators and territories. That’s why, for example, recently we’ve presented to Lodi Export (consortium for development of  exporting opportunities for province or Lodi’s area) the proposal to join our discussion-group to focus on common aims for mutual benefit that international perspectives could bring to this area.
