European grants: SISSA at the top of the ranking

In the competitive scenery of European financing, SISSA is at the top of the ranking of the Italian scientific institutions for the ratio between awarded Grants (financing for research) and number of researchers and lecturers.

L’occhio del fotografo

Giovedì 24 gennaio il Laboratorio Interdisciplinare per le Scienze Naturali e Umanistiche della SISSA ha organizzato il secondo degli appuntamenti legati al mondo della fotografia vista come un ponte tra arte e scienza.

Il titolo di questo nuovo incontro, tenuto da Andrea Tomicich: "l'occhio del fotografo".

A quiz on food

For nearly one year some researchers of the International School for Advances Studies (SISSA), the University of Milan, Alma Mater Studiorum University in Bologna and the University of Perugia have been working on FoodCAST,a project commissioned and financed by the Lombardy Region, MIPAF and ISMEA, to tackle the complex dynamics of food with an innovative and multidisciplinary approach never tried before. Foodly is a game devised and designed by SISSA Medialab, with the collaboration of SISSA Master’s programme in Complex Actions, to make the public familia

A new project for employment of university and PhD graduates

October 26, 2012

Enhancing the creation of spin-offs to favour employment among highly-educated young people, this is the goal of RE-SEED, a project presented today and also promoted by SISSA in Trieste.

What if the nanoworld slides

Some researchers at SISSA have published in PNAS a study to better understand sliding friction in nanotribology: a new simulation model opens the way to new research methods, thanks to colloidal crystals.

Riboswitches in action

Riboswitches are RNA segments that switch genes on and off, either during DNA transcription or during protein translation, but little is known about the precise workings of this process. A study at SISSA uncovers some of the basic steps in this complex mechanism and paves the way for future research.

Comunicare il rischio climatico

23 Novembre 2012, ore 10 
SISSA - Aula 5 

Mentre si moltiplicano gli allarmi meteo in tutta la penisola, le statistiche non ci fanno pensare bene per il futuro a livello globale: mostrano infatti un aumento costantedegli eventi climatici estremi negli ultimi decenni. In questo quadro, il delicato rapporto "triangolare" fra società, scienziati e giornalisti svolge un ruolo cruciale e fa sorgere una domanda: "come si comunicano i dati sul rischio climatico?"

New research to study RNA just about to start

October 10, 2012

The group led by Giovanni Bussi at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste has just received considerable financing to study RNA, a molecule with several functions, important in the biology of the cell. In the project, the method of computer simulations will be used.

Scientists inspired by a microscopic water organism

October 9, 2012 

Until now it has been a mystery to scientists: how does it work? What is the need of the movement of euglenids, small organisms swimming in any pond? Nobody has ever described it in detail and nobody has ever understood its dynamics. But today, through a mathematical model, scientists at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) and at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya have suggested a plausible description of this movement, made by the sliding of the membrane around the outer surface of euglenids.

I Master in Comunicazione della Scienza e in Giornalismo Scientifico Digitale

Manca poco al termine per l'iscrizione al Master biennale in Comunicazione della Scienza e per il Master annuale in Giornalismo Scientifico Digitale organizzati dalla SISSA (Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati).

Quest'anno, infatti, la scadenza per la presentazione delle domande è il 26 settembre (entro le 12.00), per entrambi i corsi. Ma non è l'unica novità, anzi:
