“One of Italy’s most experienced companies in school-work alternation schemes.” This was the motivation behind the award given to Mevis S.p.a. and ITS Meccatronico Veneto in the national ‘Orientainsegnanti’ day promoted by Confindustria and by the Ministry for Education, held in Modena on the 18th November last year. Mevis has always invested major resources in training and always encourages initiatives aimed at promoting exchanges between schools and industry. As part of a recent school-work alternation scheme, Mevis placed three Comau robots at the disposal of students on work placements. The robots were reconditioned by the students under the supervision of their teachers and company staff for use as didactic robot stations in three colleges of ITS in the Veneto region (the Rossi in Vicenza, Giorgio Fermi in Treviso and the Severi in Padua). “It is only by sharing resources between schools and industry that we can ensure a proper education for the future of young people,” commented Federico Visentin, CEO of Mevis, on hearing that the prize had been assigned and received by Mevis managers Stefano Nagy and Valter Zanon, accompanied by Giorgio Spanevello and Sergio Portinari representing ITS, and students Alessandro Carlesso, Matteo Orso and Riccardo Zugno. Mevis was also awarded the BoQuE educational quality mark, giving the company priority for one academic year in the organisation of work placements, school-work alternation schemes and apprenticeships. Mevis will also be included in the national register of ‘School-Friendly Companies’.
