ICGEB has launched a new video series, highlighting the work of its researchers to support the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030.
This year we entered the Decade of Action. World leaders at the United Nations assembly asked us all to foster efforts toward Agenda 2030. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda strive toward an end to poverty, protection of the planet, and to improve the lives and prospects of all people, everywhere. At the ICGEB we are fully committed to this mission. These videos focus on how the research of our scientists translates to tangible results for sustainable development to reach these goals.
To date, we published four episodes of this series. In the first video, Dr Emanuele Buratti presents his team’s work on non-communicable diseases. In the second one, Dr Vittorio Venturi speaks about how his research on bacteriology is connected with the goal of zero hunger. In the third, Dr Natasa Skoko tells us about her efforts to bridge goals SDG3, good health, and SDG9, industry and innovation. In the last episode, Dr Alessandro Marcello explains how training at ICGEB is an excellent example of how the Organisation works toward offering quality education for everyone.
