Organization/Company: The University of Canterbury was founded in 1873, founded as Canterbury College, and at the time was only the second university of New Zealand. The university was set on the Oxbridge model with an important difference: girls were admitted from the beginning. A young graduate, Helen Connon, became the first woman of the then British Empire to receive honors. For most of its first 100 years the University was located in the center of Christchurch (now the Arts Center). In 1975 the University of Canterbury moved to a spacious, 76-hectare site built in the suburb of Ilam, 7 km from the old city site, including a central library complex, classrooms, laboratories and staff quarters surrounded by playgrounds, woods and the famous gardens of Ilam. Il 1 ° gennaio 2007, il vicino Christchurch College of Education, il secondo più antico istituto di formazione per insegnanti in Nuova Zelanda, si fuse con l'Università e divenne il sesto college della University of Canterbury. Today the university has 5 colleges: Arts, Health Education and Human Development, Engineering, Science and Business and Law. Canterbury offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in over 70 subjects, from accounting to zoology.

Even if you find a problem, you will find a solution as well”. This is how today, at the Opening Ceremony of the Rome International Careers Festival, Eva Ratti defined the role of a researcher. She focuses her attention on PhD, a payed training under a supervisor.

After having graduated from Astrophysics in Italy, Eva Ratti went to the Netherlands and was granted a PhD. Then, coming back to Italy, she became aware of the lack of opportunities for “Philosophiae doctors” who choose to stick with science.

As statistics show, only 5% of those who take a PhD continue with research, while the other 95% have to find another job. That’s why people think that there is no future for research in Italy and most of the Italian researchers leave their country to go abroad.

“Staying abroad helps you open your mind to other cultures, share your opinions, compare ideas and work on yourself. It makes you become a citizen of the world. On the other side, it is difficult to stay away from home, having to deal with another language and a different culture.” Eva said. In order to solve this problem, Eva Ratti decided to create a startup, with the aim of fueling the innovation power of companies and organizations by connecting them with those coming from a scientific research experience who are seeking career opportunities in the corporate world. Although society and science are considered two separate worlds, Eva underlines the fact that these realities are interacting and that “the methods of science affect our everyday life and thinking heavily”. An example to clarify is when you take medicines in a certain way, you trust the pharmacist who sold it to you . The pharmacist trusts the producers of the medicine and these people trust the research.

Eva Ratti stresses the concept that knowing science helps you in many ways since its very nature makes you grow a critical and thoughtful mentality. Ultimately, thanks to these knowledges you’ll less naif and more aware of the world around you. In this sense, for those who choose to get a PhD with true motivation and awareness, applying one's knowledge to everyday life could be an added value, given the fact that researchers are best trained to face the challenges of innovation.
