Established in Bologna in 1998, by the will of entrepreneur and philanthropist Marino Golinelli, Fondazione Golinelli currently represents the sole Italian example of a fully operational private philanthropic foundation, inspired by Anglo-Saxon models. It spreads initiatives dealing with education, professional training, research, innovation, business, and culture. The aim is to offer everyone – young and old – the necessary tools in order to understand the future, by fostering cultural growth, awareness and the ability to responsibly face what lies ahead, both from a professional and a human point of view. Fondazione Golinelli collaborates with the primary Italian public institutions and with the leading academic, cultural and scientific partners, on a local, national and international level. FG is also partner in several Erasmus+ projects, such as “Start up Europe” for students on mobility and entrepreneurship education, and HE5 Project “Mobility of Vocational Education in Training, where students are involved into hands-on activities on chemistry and forensic science.
