04 Dec 2023 Ognibene Power funds a scholarship for female Mechatronics Engineering students at UNIMORE.
Olmes Ognibene has always believed in young people and their potential: in fact, Claudio was only 15 years old when he joined the company not as a mere bystander, but with an active role and the ability to sign legal documents.
There is another very important value that Olmes passed on to us: gender equality.
At his side since 1953 has always been his wife Amneris.
Today the company’s vice president is Cristina, and Irene, Claudio’s daughter, is a member of the board of directors.
With the intention of honoring the values that Olmes passed on to us and with the goal of encouraging female students to realize their dreams, leaving their mark in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) world on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of our founder’s birth, we decided to award a scholarship worth 5 thousand euros to a deserving female student in the first year of the Mechatronics Engineering master’s degree program at UNIMORE for the 2023/2024 academic year.
“Our father looked ahead and believed in the potential of young people,” Cristina Ognibene stressed, “We want to continue to follow his example because this is the only way we will continue to grow the company: thanks to people’s talent, grit and intuition.
