LogoWe are starting our second cycle with a slight change in name -- we will now be L'EMbeDS, to indicate the full integration of the area of Law in our activities. Many other changes are forthcoming, including some to our site.

Our basic mission though will stay the same, and our initiatives will grow building upon the results of the first cycle.

We will continue to promote data- and computation-intensive research in the social sciences, addressing its methodological, social and governance challenges in an interdisciplinary perspective.

L'EMbeDS aims to be a space for the kind of innovation that arises from the convergence of disciplines, fostering the environment and providing the infrastructure needed to create synergies across scientific domains.

The L'EMbeDS 2023 Kick-off event will include general presentations concerning our plans for the second cycle and of our role as part of the Sant'Anna School, as well as scientific talks, and will be open to the whole community of the School.  The event will be held in Aula Magna Storica, Piazza Martiri della Libertà 33, in the afternoon of Friday, March 3rd, 2023.
