Dear colleagues,

 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 <>. 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.
