I.P.E. – Istituto per Ricerche ed Attività Educative (Bari, Naples)

The I.P.E. was founded in Naples in 1979 on the initiative of a group of university lecturers, entrepreneurs and professionals dedicated to “helping young students gain access to education, culture and jobs”( art. 1 of its Statute), by distributing scholarships, carrying out research projects and promoting University Colleges. Over the years, the I.P.E. has also organized scientific conferences, masters programmes and courses in higher studies, guidance on university study programmes and career counselling. Records of the cultural events and philosophical and scientific conventions held at the college have also been published. It became a non-profit making association in 1981 on proposals made by the Ministry of Education (D.P.R.374/81 of 1/6/1981) and was acknowledged shortly afterwards by the Ministry as a “legally recognized University College”, being the first such institution in Southern Italy to be included in this list. Currently the I.P.E. administers colleges in Naples, Rome, Bari and Salerno.
