In celebration of this important milestone, students in various high schools of Rome and Lazio will participate in an event.

In fact, the absolute protagonists of the event, organized with the Fondazione Mondo Digitale, will be students who will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with researchers and learn more about the progress and discoveries on mankind and our planet, environment and energy, robotics, life sciences, sustainability, clean energy, and artificial intelligence and the digital transition. Activities will be based on role modelling to create opportunities for students to discuss these topics with the researchers. The aim to provide students with positive models and transmit values and interests that may inspire them.
