AlmaEngage is a virtual structure for coordinating development cooperation activities within the University of Bologna at a local and an international level. AlmaEngage is part of a broader process in which universities are opening up to the outside world, are actively engaging in social and public issues and are sharing as well as transferring knowledge to the benefit of society. This project serves as a way to promote and put in place any planned initiatives, as well as to create and implement new ones aimed at sensitizing and stimulating academic and non-academic stakeholders on the themes of development cooperation.

Within the activities of AlmaEngage, the University of Bologna has collaborated with international NGOs to identify opportunities for student mobility within development cooperation projects. As for promotion and communication, the University has recently created a photographic exhibition that shows its projects on development cooperation all over the world.
