The Group has always been engaged in the promotion of educational and training programmes in order to create a pool of specialized human resources to foster the Fincantieri system, with specific reference to the network of suppliers, in order to cope with the workload.
With such aim, multiple initiatives have been developed by Fincantieri, together with regional and municipal administrations.
Project organized by the Prefecture of Gorizia and aimed at high school students in the province in order to make young people aware of road safety.
MUNICIPALITY OF MONFALCONE
Fincantieri and the Municipality of Monfalcone, sharing the need to increase local school facilities, also caused by the impact of the population active in the shipyard, have conducted a feasibility study for the renovation of a building, owned by the Municipality, to be used as a nursery school. The project envisages the creation of a number of classrooms equipped with all the necessary services, potentially able to accommodate about one hundred children.
After the Agreement is signed, scheduled for spring 2020, Fincantieri will return the property to the Municipality of Monfalcone, renovated and adapted for the new use, in time for the start of the 2020/21 school year. Fincantieri has also undertaken to bear the operating costs with a contribution for the first three years of activity.
