Collegio Carlo Alberto is a foundation created in 2004 as a joint initiative of the University of Torino (UNITO) and the Compagnia di San Paolo Bank Foundation. Being one of the two CCA’s founders, the University of Torino has thus a legal link with CCA. Furthermore CCA has a longstanding cooperation with UNITO, working in close connection with four departments of the University of Torino that host a majority of economists, sociologists, political scientists and law scholars. CCA’s cooperation with UNITO is institutionalised through periodic framework cooperation agreements, the latest signed on October 2019 with a 5 years’ duration.
