Alexander Zeitelhack, Academic Dean at BSBI, commented: “We are happy to see our main academic partner receive such an important recognition. We share with UNINETTUNO the passion for innovation and inclusion in higher education, and we are honoured to have the possibility to continue working alongside them.”
