- About the CUG
The promotion of SISSA wellbeing and equal opportunities is managed by the CUG
What is CUG
CUG is an acronym for “Comitato Unico di Garanzia”, the unified committee for equal opportunities, the promotion of the wellbeing of the personnel, and against discriminations.
The CUG has propositional, consultative, and verification tasks. It contributes to the optimization of the productivity of public work by promoting a working environment characterized by the respect of the principles of equal opportunity, of organizational well-being and by the contrast of any form of discrimination and moral or psychic violence for workers.

- The SISSA wellbeing network
SISSA set up an articulated network to intercept possible discomfort. The appropriate channel depends on the nature and the reason of the problem, as detailed below.
The Confidential Counsellor, dr. Francecsa Pidone, provides free advice and assistance to every person at SISSA who feels discomfort or who is subjected to discrimination, harassment, dignity violation, or mobbing.
This service, offered by dr. Erica Costantini and dr. Diletta Viezzoli, is available for all SISSA’s personnel (students, postdocs, fixed-term and permanent employees, collaborators, etc) and offers support for personal and professional problems. The service can be contacted via email.
This service is organised by ARDiSS (University of Trieste).
The ombudspersons are available as independent, neutral and confidential resources in order to help students and postdocs with conflicts within research groups and in the personal and professional relationships with the supervisors. Further information here. Prof. Davide Crepaldi and Prof. Giuseppe Santoro are internal (SISSA) ombudspersons. Prof. Sergia Adamo is the external ombudsperson (University of Trieste).

In the light of the advantages for the institution and the employees, an extended and flexible form of smart working is now being organised.
