Sant'Anna School is taking part in the fifth edition of Focus Live 2022 (from 4 to 6 November at the Science and Technology Museum in Milan), with a series of initiatives involving professors and researchers. This year's edition celebrates 30 years of Focus magazine and looks to the future.
The initiative brings together scientists, researchers, representatives from the worlds of business, art and sport to discuss technological and scientific developments in the field of research.

The iniziative of Sant'Anna School

Interdisciplinarity is at the centre of "Who is afraid of robots?" (5 November at 3.10 p.m.), the talk with Paolo Dario, Emeritus Professors of the Sant'Anna School, Alberto Pirni, professor at the Dirpolis (Law, Politics, Development) Institute, and Marianna Capasso, research fellow at Dirpolis Institute. The aim of the talk is the complex interaction between ethics and robotics.

"Returning to walk" is the title of the meeting with Silvestro Micera, full professor at the BioRobotics Institute, and Michel Roccati, a patient who was paralysed in 2017 and is now back to walking thanks to electrodes implanted in the spinal cord (6 November at 12 noon).

In addition, Marco Martinelli, affiliated researcher at the Sant'Anna School and science communicator, will take part at Focus Live as a speaker and creator of digital content on social networks.
