The online webinar UniTO-for-Beirut will take place on 26th November 2020 at 10:00 a.m.


After the 4th of August blast at the Beirut port, the five campuses of the University of St. Joseph has been severely damaged. The explosion is the last of a series of events (the protests, the default, the COVID-19 pandemic) that have affected the Country in the last year. As a decades-long partner, the University of Turin organizes a moment of reflection about the future of the university education in Lebanon as well as on the perspectives of further cooperation projects in a such difficult moment. Also an occasion to raise funds to fix the damages at the St. Joseph Campuses.

Opening remarks
  • Salim Daccache, Rector Saint-Joseph University of Beirut
  • Stefano Geuna, Rector University of Turin
  • Rosita Di Peri, Department of Culture, Politics and Society


The event will be available via Webex and Facebook.
