The Project “Univr Fashion Week” was presented on 18 March 2016 during the Conference on “The Fashion Industry in the European Union” held at the Law Department of the University of Verona (Main Hall, Via Carlo Montanari, 9 – 37122 Verona).
Academics, legal practitioners working in the fashion industry, and experts on innovation and management offered an overview of the main challenges that the Italian and European fashion industry is facing within the globalised market. The discussion also provided ideas and suggestions on the issues that were further deepened during the Summer School lectures and its related activities.
The Conference was organised in two sessions: the first one (h 10.30-13) addressed the topics of imaging, innovation and fiscal advice; the second one (h 14.30-17) focused on historical aspects and legal counselling. Members of the Teaching Staff of the Summer School were also listed as planned speakers.
