The "Centro per la cooperazione internazionale" (Centre for International Cooperation - CCI) is an independent association dedicated to the analysis, information, training and promotion of knowledge on issues of international cooperation, European affairs, peace and human rights. The Centre operates on a territorial, national and international scale, proposing itself as a place of in-depth analysis and innovation, in relation to the perspectives of the international scenario, cooperation and sustainable development. It is divided into two operational units, different in terms of specialisation profiles and complementarities:
- The Unit "Competences for a global society" works on the interdependence between the local and the global;
- The Unit "Trans-European Balkans Caucasus Observatory" specialises in European integration from below, with a special focus on South East Europe.
The current members of the Centre are the Autonomous Province of Trento, the University of Trento, the Municipality of Trento, the Municipality of Rovereto and the Fondazione Opera Campana dei Caduti. A specific Memorandum of Understanding also governs the collaboration with the OECD/OSCE Centre in Trento.
