University of Naples “L’Orientale" organises an "open day" once or twice a year aimed at putting school students, their families and those interested in the education and courses offered by the University into contact with teaching staff in the domain of world languages, cultures and societies. During the event "demo lessons" are offered, which are open to both school students and the general public.
Futuro remoto is an annual event in which the University of Naples “L’Orientale” participates in the dissemination of research findings. The initiative contributes to bringing research, science and technological innovation closer to a larger public, mostly from the city of Naples and Campania region. It is organised by the Città della Scienza foundation in collaboration with Neapolitan universities.
