Wed Nov 25 14:02:32 CET 2020
From 26 to 28 November, Trieste’s "SHARPER – the European Researchers’
Night " will take place, virtually, offering a rich programme of online
activities including meetings with researchers, virtual tours, and
science games. This year's theme is the 17 Sustainable Development Goals
adopted by all the United Nations member states.
The event will be launched on Thursday 26 November at 6.00 pm, with a
panel on the topic of A.I. and intellectual property, from the newly
established headquarters of Trieste’s science centre Immaginario
Scientifico, in the renewed area of Porto Vecchio. All the activities
will be streamed live and can be followed on
and on the website of Il Piccolo <http://www.ilpiccolo.it/>. All events
are in Italian.
On Friday afternoon, a marathon of short, face-to-face meetings with
researchers from Trieste's main science institutions will take place.
Tune in at 8pm to see ICTP's Telecommunications / ICT for Development
Laboratory researchers Ermanno Pietrosemoli and Marco Zennaro talking
about “Technologies for a connected world”, focussing on their work on
wireless networks. This is a field that has experienced a rapid growth
in recent years and represents an incredible opportunity to contribute
to the implementation of the program of the 2030 Agenda in the field of
commercial and industrial applications and sustainability.
SHARPER Trieste will close on Saturday 28 November with some virtual
science games, including Fish N'Ships, curated by OGS, that helps teach
about marine species and different fishing activities and the
anthropogenic impact on the ecosystem; a climate crossword; and a
special session of “energy horoscopes”, curated by INFN, that will
provide special horoscopes based on new constellations derived from the
gamma sources of the Universe.
The Researchers' Night is an initiative promoted by the European
Commission, within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.
