The Asia Institute supports entrepreneurs and businesses in Emilia-Romagna that work, or aim to work, in the Asian continent.

The Asia Institute has strong expertise in Asian history, economy, and political dynamics, which is backed by years of extensive fieldwork.

The Asia Institute offers its knowledge to public and private bodies, to support them in operating in an increasingly complex geopolitical environment. It offers business training activities and a wide range of services, such as translation, interpreting, and escorting in missions in various Asian countries.


To foster synergy between business, local entrepreneurship, and the University of Bologna, the Asia Institute promotes activities aimed at hiring students and recent graduates, who are specialized in Asia, for traineeships in local firms. Together with expert entrepreneurs, the Asia Institute organizes workshops and training sessions for students enrolled at the University of Bologna to make their resumé increasingly professional.
