About us

ECLAT is the spin off of the University of Catania that organizes the unique International Summer School on Project Management specifically addressed to research projects in the field of tobacco harm reduction. Held in collaboration with the Center of Excellence for the acceleration of HArm Reduction (CoEHAR) the ISPM can count on the experience of highly-skilled and very motivated project managers who want to share their knowledge and train other professionals and young graduates from all over the world.

The ISPM 2021 has the free patronage of the University of Catania and of the Project Management Institute-Southern Italy Chapter (PMI-SIC).

Our mission

The International summer School on Project Management (ISPM) aims at training young graduates and professionals on the best practices about leading project management methods, combining a theoretical background with a practical approach. Students will also have the opportunity to work in simulation activities  and group exercises.

Thanks to the ISPM, students will experience different factors that determine the successful completion of a project. Young project managers will be able to face the challenges of a job that is highly requested, extremely versatile and requires great adaptability and organizational skills.


Why Learn With Us?

In a changing world, competitivity can be measured on the ability to manage resources of different disciplines, capabilities and organizational units. In this framework, project management is becoming more frequently important to execute projects in a controlled way achieving all the expected results. Ability in work planning, budgeting, deadlines management, working with multi-disciplinary teams, the awareness of personal strengths and weaknesses, are all challenges that a project manager needs to deal with.



Specifically addressed to health research projects, the ISPM will give the opportunity to learn in a multicultural context.



Hold in one of the most beautiful seaside resort in Sicily, the ISPM will offer unique experiences of social activities and cultural trips.
