"I am particularly happy to join this fine institution, supported by our Governing Board in the project we will carry out with all of you.

The teachers and researchers and all the administrative staff can count on my commitment at their side, just as I will count on their involvement in the projects of an institution to which we are all very attached.

I am convinced that "EUt+ will be the backbone around which we will develop the UTT from now on, with the aim of creating a European degree and a united European University of technology with a high international profile".

As I take office, I have a special thought for the students whose families trust us for their human and professional training at a key moment in their lives.

We owe them the best.

We must prepare them for the major changes underway, whether climatic, energetic or economic, by making them autonomous, scientifically competent, technologically innovative and aware of their role as engineers and citizens in the city.

I wish us success in the challenge of European transformation, together”.
