PMI Day - Industriamoci 2023: over 70 students visit Caorso and Trino sites

24 November 2023


Once again this year, Sogin Group took part in the PMI Day - Industriamoci event, the national day dedicated to small and medium-sized enterprises promoted by Confindustria and which is now in its 14th edition. 


PMI Day hopes to introduce the younger generations to the entrepreneurial activities in their local area through guided visits to associated companies. 


In this spirit, Sogin opened the doors of the nuclear power plants in Caorso on 15 November and in Trino on 24 November. 

The event was promoted in collaboration with Confindustria Piacenza, offering 35 students from Piacenza's ‘Faustini Frank Nicolini’ middle school the unique experience of visiting the Caorso facility along with our technicians and imagining the future of the Piacenza site together. 


The theme of the 2023 Edition was ‘Freedom’, and the workshop took the name ‘Free to express yourself: draw the future of your territory’. Each participant was asked to draw and then present his or her own idea of the future of the site where the Caorso power station now stands after decommissioning activities have been completed and the area is free of radiation constraints. 


More than 40 students from the ‘A. Avogadro’ Scientific Studies High School in Vercelli visited the Trino plant to learn more about its industrial past and the decommissioning phase underway. 

The event was organised in collaboration with Confindustria Novara Vercelli Valsesia and provided an opportunity to develop STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills on the eve of the World Day against Gender-based Violence. In particular, a number of Sogin's ‘role models’ demonstrated how female skills are enhanced at the company and shared their experience to encourage new generations, particularly young female students, to choose their future university path and then their career feeling unrestrained by any form of stereotype. 


The two days provided an important opportunity to raise awareness of Sogin's history and work, while also contributing to achieving one of the goals of the 2030 Agenda: SDG4 - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
