As part of its Youth Programme, and in the wider context of the European Green Deal, the JRC hosts a monthly series of Digital School Seminars for secondary schools in English and Italian.
They are titled “Science is everywhere” and touch upon issues such as food, health, biodiversity, energy and cybersecurity and big data.
The next of these seminars in Italian, titled “Let’s talk about…health”, will present the work our scientists carry out in support of EU policies on consumer safety, air quality, development of alternative methods to animal testing and public health.
Subjects like Nanomedicines and nanovaccines against Cancer and COVID-19 also will be addressed.
The broad spectrum of knowledge is distilled and introduced by the scientists themselves through ad-hoc presentations.
