To keep pace with the times, the International Center of Reseach in International Management (ICRIM) of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore has organized the Winter School on Human mobility and migration as a resource for organizations (HUMUS). HUMUS will be held during 13-17 January 2020, taught in English, offers an advanced, theory-practice overview about the opportunities and challenges generated by human mobility for trade, business, innovation and economic development.

Mazzeschi srl is glad to have the chance to support HUMUS by providing insights on mobility of human resources from the legal aspects.
