STEM and Gender Advancement (SAGA)

A seminar organized by SISSA will present the SAGA initiative, a global UNESCO project that aims to contribute to improving the situation of women and reducing the gender gap in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Reducing the gender gap in science and technology

SAGA (a global UNESCO project with the support of Sida) aims to contribute to improving the situation of women and reducing the gender gap in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields in all countries at all levels of education and research. A distinguishing feature of SAGA is its focus on data. Some of its core methodologies are determination, measurement and assessesment of sex-disaggregated data.

MARS 42

The MARS 42 Summer Entrepreneurship School will be held at SISSA between 10 and 23 July 2017.
It is developed in collaboration with 42 Accelerator, a revolutionary accelerator program for early-stage and game-changing startups. 

DOES GENDER MATTER?

The under-representation of women in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) fields is a fact. 
The meeting proposed in SISSA is a first get-together to understand the local projection, but the aim is to implement practical strategies to improve the professional experience of women. 
in STEM, first at SISSA and then beyond.  

Marching for Science

Started as a knee-jerk reaction to the new US administration's possible changes in science policy, the March for Science becomes a movement to defend and promote the role of science in society. 
Nowadays many satellite marches in the US and across the world are scheduled for Earth Day, April 22nd, 2017.

An innovative model for the study of vision

New approaches to the study of vision both from the neurobiological perspective and with a view to the technological development of artificial vision systems: that is the key result of the research project led by the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Rovereto and published in the science journal eLife.

It's the thought that counts

A sports person who has accidentally caused serious injury to a rival. A distracted driver who has caused an accident. Or a colleague who has involuntarily made a very serious error. Even outside the court room we have all been in situations in which we have had to express judgements on specific events on the basis of the seriousness of the incident but also on the intentions of those who caused them.

Collective movements in animal groups

Collective changes in biological groups require all individuals in the group to go through a behavioral change of state. Sometimes these changes are triggered by external perturbations, as in evasive maneuvers of animal groups under predatory attacks. Often, however, they occur spontaneously and are only due to internal behavioral fluctuations. In all cases, the efficiency of information transport is a key factor to prevent cohesion loss and preserve collective robustness.
