The latest series of Trieste Science & the City organised by ICGEB Trieste on topics of scientific interest for the general public, and aired on national television and radio, between 6 April and 11 May 2016, are now available on line.
The third edition of Trieste Science & the City has been organised by ICGEB Trieste and the Italian National broadcasting company RAI. The project was funded by the FVG Region, Italy and co-organised with the City of Trieste.
This year’s topics included episodes on the certainties and fears surrounding Vaccinations, GMOs: what’s happening around the world, aging, and genetic manipulation, with three international experts participating in each event.
Organised by Mauro Giacca, Director-General of ICGEB, and introduced by Silvia Bencivelli, scientific journalist from RAI Cultura, Rome, a series of twelve radio shows on RAI Regional Radio were run contemporaneously, on the topics discussed, with speakers and additional experts, often from ICGEB, being interviewed, followed by Q&A with the general public.
