Throughout his life, Roberto Rocca was recognized not only for his professional suitability but also for his broad general culture and humanism. He demonstrated a constant concern for education, with the conviction that it is a primary source of personal development and an engine that transforms communities.
Education, a tool for personal and social progress
In 1945, Roberto Rocca joined his father Agostino in founding Techint. From the beginning, the vision that accompanied the industrial project of the Techint Group -which over the years would expand globally- was to grow hand in hand with neighboring communities, based on education as a key tool for individual and social progress.
Roberto Rocca demonstrated a lifelong passion for education, supporting a wide variety of initiatives dedicated to learning at all levels as well as research. In fact, when he left teaching to devote himself fully to the foundation of Techint, he was not leaving behind a life of study and research but transferring his passion for education to the industrial field.
Therefore, the current Roberto Rocca educational programs, which include the Network of Technical Schools, Technical Gene, After School and Secondary, University and PhD Scholarships, are a worthy tribute to the man and his work.
