Frida, il forum di ricerca e public engagement di ateneo

Opening up to the public and to the area, so that everyone can be a part of the scientific and technological progress.

The University of Turin (Università di Torino) has launched this initiative a few years ago to answer the challenges of the profound changes of our time. Public engagement, that is mutually sharing knowledge, with all of the social actors (from the scientific community toi the school; from government institutions to the citizens; from cultural institutions to local companies; and media), is the key to giving value and increasing the impact of research on society.

With these features, in April 2015 the FRidA project started, through an analysis of public engagement activities of researchers and research facilities of the University. The project was officially presented on July 8, 2016.

FRidA, il Forum della Ricerca e del public engagement di Ateneo is the tool chosen by the University to open up to the area and engage the world of research with all other parts of society.

Sharing mutually means exchanging skills and experiences, spreading ideas and knowledge, languages and subjects.

A new method of communicating the development of science and technology, that goes beyond the simple criterium of sharing information, showing the university as a catalyst for processes of economic, social and cultural development.

Through the FRidA portal, academic research is seen as a continuous, dynamic and engaging process of formulating problems, hypotheses and experiments which are explained by the researchers themselves.

Today, the beta version of FRidA is available online, where you can explore UniTo’s Research section through different programs, skills, key topics, resources, events and reports by the researchers.

master in giornalismo

The two-year Master in Journalism “Giorgio Bocca” of the University of Turin has recently ended. The Master, among the 11 accredited Journalism schools in Italy, started in 2004 from the initiative of the Ordine dei Giornalisti (Italian Order of Journalists), and is the main reference for students in Piedmont, Aosta Valley and Liguria who want to become professional journalists.

The activities included in the Master, highly educational and professional, are held in collaboration with a professional Order. That’s why the Master replaces the two-year traineeship provided for by the law to take the State exam and obtain the professional qualification. There will be internships and collaborations with important daily newspapers, such as La Stampa and La Repubblica, as well.

The 20 students who were selected in the 2016 call have finished a program which trained them on the different types of journalism: data-journalism, immersive journalism, fact-checking and debunking. A programme oriented to multimedia and innovation, with social media managing and brand-journalism workshops. This video relates the programme that recently ended.

Now that a generation has done its course, the Master re-opens selections for 2018-2020.

On the Master’s website you can see the call(bando) and submit your application.

You can apply until July 23.

NeuroPsicoTOFest! Tre giorni con le Neuroscienze

The Il NeuroPsicoTOFest  begins with three days (June 27, 28 and 29, 2018) dedicated to neuroscience.

The main actor of the festival will be the Department of Neuroscience( Dipartimento di Neuroscienze), centre for excellence of the Università di Torino, named after Rita Levi Montalcini, great scientist from Turin who took her first career steps in these buildings. Founded in 2012, the department has a multi-disciplinary approach, aimed to join different academic, clinical and biomedical traditions in the study of the nervous system.

At Palazzo degli Istituti Anatomici in corso Massimo D’Azeglio, 52, which houses the Museo Lombroso, di Anatomia e della Frutta, researchers will present the results they obtained and future aspirations of studies carried out until now. During the conference, Turin’s science history will be remembered, as well as its main representants: Carlo Giacomini, Giuseppe Levi and Rita Levi Montalcini. New methods of multidisciplinary analysis, between Neuroscience and Psychology, will also be examined: from non-invasive brain stimulation, to the study of brain mechanisms of traumatic memories, and the subject of Neurodegeneration.
