Students'

Project

Every year since 1988, WPI students have carried out relevant projects, in order to solve issues and problems of the city of Venice with a scientific and technological approach. In 30 years of activity, the projects have covered a wide range of topics, from conservation of cultural heritage to in-depth analysis of the hydrogeological data of the lagoon. Many of these projects have inspired and started the creation of some Venetian start-ups.
