The UniCredit Foundation promotes the culture of solidarity and philanthropy, both within UniCredit and externally
The Gianesini Emma Fund is an example of enlightened philanthropy.
Established in 2013 thanks to the generous donation of Mrs. Gianesini Emma, it is managed by the Foundation itself
The donor, Mrs. Gianesini Emma, a Veronese philanthropist who died in January 2021, believed strongly in young people and in research and thanks to her generosity she allowed a large group of worthy researchers to deepen their studies at prestigious foreign universities.
Since 2014, thanks to the Gianesini Emma Fund, UniCredit Foundation, in collaboration with the University of Verona, has managed the annual "Gianesini Emma Fund Call", which reached its ninth edition in 2022.
The call until 2019 was intended to support research projects in the field of Medicine and Economics, aimed at graduates, doctoral students or researchers of the University of Verona. At the behest of the donor herself while she was still alive, from 2020 the call was intended exclusively for the medical field.
Up to now, a total of € 720,000 has been disbursed for 16 Medicine Researchers and 12 Economics Researchers.
Starting from 2020, the Gianesini Emma Fund, in order to expand support for research in the medical field, has also supported two Research Grants provided by the Umberto Veronesi Foundation for a total of €. 64,000.
