Our international strategy is based on 3 mutually-reinforcing priorities:
#1 Building a long-lasting European center of academic excellence
complementarity, synergies and cross-fertilization of research and knowledge transfer between European partners
#2 The education that the labor market needs
the academia-industry partnership at the heart of our programme development
#3 Be where the future of colour science will happen
towards Asian markets & knowledge economies
experience our international outreach
How COSI would look like in 5 years?
If you are among the first cohorts of COSI, you can be confident that your alma mater will still be alive and evolving in the coming decade. And who knows, you might even come back to us as a professor or practitioner!
We want the COSI programme to be/come:
> A sustained venture financed through a responsive industry/academia partnership on the long run;
> A well-known and renewed brand identified and valued by the colour science community as a whole: recruiters, practitioners, researchers and policy-makers, and progressively identify as the reference programme in colour sciences;
> A European academic center of excellence, attracting and servicing the best undergrad students irrespective of their country of origin and financial resources;
> A worldwide knowledge & skills center on colour science, bridging European and Asian color science stakeholders in a community of practice with international profile and outreach.
COSI development is project-based, driven by academics partners
