Applications for the Seasonal School  MEDSKILL – DEVELOPMENT OF MEDICAL SKILLS BY SIMULATIONwill be open until February 13, 2023 and classes will take place online from March 6th to 10th, 2023

As of today, the need for practical skills and problem-solving capabilities remains largely unmet in many medical school curricula across Europe. Medical school education, in fact, remains largely anchored to a traditional paradigm of learning a discrete amount of information about pathophysiology principles and illnesses’ descriptions, without worrying about developing the skills necessary to work confidently “on the patient”. Digital tools based on macro-and microsimulation, thanks to their flexibility, effectiveness, accuracy and accessibility may give a fundamental contribution in solving this issue, and we want to apply their potential in undergraduate medical students’ education. The MEDSKILL school will allow students to: 1) get in touch with digital tools that facilitate the study of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and clinical reasoning; 2) confront virtual patients/mannequins, interpret their artificial symptoms/signs and make decisions, taking into account the appropriateness of the choice, as well as ethical correlates and sustainability; 3) mimic clinical situations to test patient communication skills, simulate the use of diagnostic equipment, team leaders and interventional therapies.

Applications for the Seasonal School PROREMOTE - PROXIMITY CARE IN REMOTE AREAS: A MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO PROXIMITY CARE IN REMOTE AREASwill be open until February 20th, 2023 and classes will take place  in presence from March 6th to 10th, 2023.

Covid-19 highlighted how important it is to promote local health and ensure proximity to the patient. How is it possible to pursue this objective also in inland areas, mountain areas or small islands? How is it possible to guarantee equity of treatment and excellence in care even for citizens who live far from large welfare centers? This seasonal school is dedicated to this theme. The ways in which to analyze the needs of a territory and the possible implementable technological and organizational solutions will be analyzed.
The Seasonal School will introduce participants to the urgent topic of proximity-care through a dialogue between social, experimental and life sciences. Students will be involved, through different perspectives, on the issues inherent to the enhancement of quantitative and qualitative data, and organizational models for local areas, as useful information for decision makers and service managers to support the innovation of services and of the social protection net of the analysed contexts, starting from the example of Valle del Serchio. At the end of the Seasonal School, participants will develop a comprehensive view and specific tools to support policy making to support proximity care in remote areas.

Applications for the Seasonal School INSIDER – INNOVAZIONI NEL SISTEMA DELLA RAPPRESENTANZA will be open until February 27th, 2023 and classes will take place in presence from March 20th to 24th, 2023.  

The seasonal school offers a selective study program open to motivated undergraduate and PhD students, giving them the opportunity to obtain a specific training on the main current issues concerning political representation, electoral and parliamentary law in a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective that includes law, political science, political philosophy, economy as well as the contribution of other fields (e.g., ICTs). It is a kind of training that no ordinary university course is able to provide, in particular due to the presence of speakers with different background and expertise. The students will therefore acquire skills that will allow them to critically consider from different points of view the various paradigm changes in political representation. The course will be conducted by lecturers of different backgrounds, thus enabling participants to look at the subject matter from an interdisciplinary perspective. The course will be articulated in lectures, working groups, case studies as well as meetings with experts. Unless otherwise indicated, the lessons will be held in Italian. An advanced knowledge of the Italian language is therefore required. 

Applications for the Seasonal School PHOTONS-@: PHOTONIC TECHNOLOGIES FOR SENSING APPLICATIONS will be open until March 20th, 2023 and classes will take place in presence from May 8th to 12th, 2023.

Photonic technologies have played a key role in the last decades to address the high demand for data traffic by telecommunication networks and data centres. The industrial development of Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) optical communications systems and networks in the nineties and the more recent interest in photonic integration for data centres to overcome their well-known electronic bottleneck, have driven the technology to a high level of maturity, opening the way to many other industrial fields and applications. In particular, photonic technologies are becoming extremely attractive for sensing applications in a wide range of industrial fields, including energy, oil & gas, transportation, automotive, aerospace, bio-chemical and medical applications, as well as for structural health and environmental monitoring. The proposed courses will provide the students with the basic skills to understand the industrial requirement for photonic sensing, including specific niche applications, as for example, aerospace and high energy physics, as well as applications addressing large volume market sectors, like the automotive and transportation sectors.

Applications for the Seasonal School ARTIST - 5G/6G NETWORKS TRANSFORMING THE DIGITAL SOCIETY will be open until April 11, 2023 and classes will take place in presence from May 22 to 26, 2023.

Future mobile network technologies (5G, 6G, etc.) will allow the creation of new applications that will transform the way people live, work and interact with the environment. The educational objectives of the proposed Seasonal School are aimed at understanding and learning the architectures of 5G / 6G cellular systems with regard to the radio interface, the wired component and the software components such as virtualized entities, edge computing and AI-aided resource allocation. Besides, the courses will analyse the main features of data traffic transport and routing technologies in 5G/6G networks, telemetry techniques and advanced traffic conditioning techniques, in order to offer a global view of the emerging services that may be delivered by 5G/6G networks and how these networks are able to meet the stringent requirements that such services sometimes require. The analysis will also dwell on the impact of the services on the sustainability of the planet and the global challenges of the 21st century.
