VIA-Academy emerges as a 'bottom-up' organization that thrives on the
synergistic and pro-active contribution of all its members. At the
moment, the major contributors are: Mauro Degli Esposti (Faculty of
Life Sciences), Silvia Massini (Manchester Business School) and Lucio
Piccirillo (Astrophysics) all working at The University of
Manchester. Luca Boscolo (Nottingham) and Paolo Missier (Manchester)
are contributing their IT expertise to build this website, while
Manuela Costanzo, member of the COMITES of Manchester coordinates the
interface with the Italian community and its representatives,
including the Consulate in Manchester.
The initial structure ad functioning of the VIA network is described
in the specific links contained in VIAWiki (predominantly in Italian).
