Background

The Italian Multi-Bi Research Project ETH/92/P01

The Italian Multi-Bi Research Project ETH/92/P01, financed by the Italian government under the patronage of UNFPA, was aimed at developing in-depth studies on seven ‘demographic’ topics, mainly using data from the 1994 Population and Housing Census of Ethiopia.

The formal agreement was signed by the parties in late 1997. Because of some bureaucratic problems research started only in summer 1999. The institutions involved in this research effort are the Ethiopian Central Statistical Authority (CSA) and the Italian Institute for Population Research of the Italian National Research Council (IRP-CNR). The direction of the project was entrusted to Mr. Amare Isaias, from the CSA, and Prof. Giuseppe Gesano, from the IRP-CNR.

Seven bilateral research groups were formed and experts from other research bodies joined those from the two main institutions, i.e. CSA and IRP-CNR. In Ethiopia, the Demographic Training and Research Center (DTRC) of the University of Addis Ababa was also involved. In Italy, several scholars from universities have taken part in the project: in particular, the Department for Demographic Studies, University of Roma “La Sapienza”, was involved in three of the seven research topics with several of its experts.

The seven research topics are the following:

The research work has been carried out between February 2000 and June 2001 through periods of collaborative research both in Italy (about three weeks of stay at the relevant research institute or universities for each of the Ethiopian experts involved) and in Ethiopia (about ten days of stay in relevant institutions in Addis Ababa for most of the Italian scholars), data preparation and elaboration, preparation of the draft research papers, finalization of the reports,…etc.

The main findings of the research papers were presented in the Dissemination Seminar organized in Addis Ababa on July 10, 2001, at the UNECA Conference Center. These final reports are the revised version of the materials presented at that seminar.

Though the project has suffered occasionally due to organizational problems, it can be recommended as a good practice both in in-depth analysis of census data in developing countries and for the effective international collaboration in research between governmental and scientific bodies. Actually, one of the main aims of the project was to produce research findings on some key-items for policy intervention related to the population. In fact, these research papers include recommendations in their section on concluding remarks. We hope that these recommendations will be considered by the policy makers in the country as well as by the international organizations.

INVFACTOR: YOU TOO CAN BE A GENIUS

INV FACTOR: YOU TOO CN BE A GENIUS

In Italy scientific research is hampered not only by a historical lack of investment but also by the lack of young people choosing SET disciplines at University and embarking in Scientific careers. Capture and cultivate young talent, in synergy with the world of science and technology, to enter as early as possible in the research system is an important objective of national scientific research, to which the Italian National Research Council will contribute through “INVFactor: You too can be a genius”, a selection of young Italian talents.

CNR-IRPPS addressed this initiative to the “young Italian inventors ” and in particular students of technical High Schools, to direct, stimulate and enhance the insights and creative energies of students acquired during their education. INVFactor represents an important occasion to give space and visibility to young creativity, confidence and value to boys and girls on their potential and demonstrate that the school is not only tests and questions, but technology and innovation.

To reach youngster INVFACTOR involved schools, associations of school heads, and teachers and students themselves. Many girls and boys are inscribed in the event and sent the materials of their inventions. CNR, based on an evaluation that took into account the feasibility and innovativeness of the proposed inventions, has selected a list of finalists.

The finalists will present their inventions during a dedicated event, to be held at the Representation of the European Union in Italy September 7, 2010. A jury of CNR experts will identify the winners, which will then be invited to Light’10-Turn on the light on science, where they will showcase their discoveries and can interact with the public and the media in the area “Young Talents on display”.

Evaluation of the efficacy and efficiency of the screening on the Melanoma and on the Prostatic Cancer by the use of Markov models

Valutazione dell’efficacia e dell’efficienza dello screening sul melanoma e sul cancro alla prostata mediante l’uso di modelli Markov.

1) valutazione in termini di appropriatezza, per individuare criteri di selezione di soggetti eleggibili allo screening;

2) valutazione delle conseguenze sul piano sanitario degli attuali livelli di screening spontaneo;

3) valutazione dei relativi costi attualmente sostenuti;

4) valutazione sia delle conseguenze che dei costi ipotetici derivanti sia da uno sviluppo spontaneo sia da specifici programmi di sanità pubblica.

KnowInG

KnowInG

Il progetto KnowInG, finanziato dal programma STC MED, nasce dalla consapevolezza che la crescita delle Regioni dell’area mediterranea passa attraverso lo sviluppo della cosiddetta “economia della conoscenza” che rappresenta un terreno fertile dove la governance economica può dar vita ad una collaborazione virtuosa tra i principali attori dello sviluppo. Nelle Regioni coinvolte nel progetto esiste una mancanza di coordinamento di questi attori da cui nasce il bisogno di favorire la nascita di gruppi di Imprese produttive (creative clusters) e di internazionalizzare il mercato della conoscenza. L’IRPPS-CNR ha in questo progetto il ruolo fondamentale di produrre e mettere a disposizione del progetto un resource centre virtuale che rappresenta un concentratore di servizi on-line per favorire la creatività e l’innovazione.

Light: Turn On The Light Of Science 2011

Light: Turn On The Light Of Science 2011

Anno: 2011

Fonte di finanziamento: Unione Europea/PON-MIUR Ricerca e Competitività

“LIGHT 2011 – Accendi la luce sulla scienza” è un’iniziativa finanziata dall’Unione Europea nell’ambito della Marie Curie Action “Researchers’ Night”. La manifestazione vuole avvicinare il pubblico e i giovani alla scienza e alla tecnologia attraverso le immagini e le attrazioni portate dai ricercatori: persone normali che ottengono risultati straordinari. LIGHT è concepita come “un evento di trasformazione culturale” basato sul concetto dell’edutainment. Attività interattive, dimostrazioni, dialogo diretto con i ricercatori e un generale senso di festa portano i visitatori ad interessarsi alla scienza, ai suoi utilizzi pratici e basi teoriche, e incoraggiano i giovani a scegliere la professione di ricercatore. LIGHT, ormai alla quarta edizione, ha avuto come tema 2011 “La scienza e le fiction TV” e si è svolta dalle ore 17.00 del 23 settembre alle ore 02.00 del giorno successivo contemporaneamente presso il Planetario di Roma, l’Orto Botanico di Palermo, la Rocca dei Rettori di Benevento, il Museo del Presente di Rende e a piazza della Libertà a Bari.

PATTERNS OF CARE

Compare Colorectal Cancer Patterns of Care between Italy and USA by using Italian Cancer Registry Linked Data and SEER-Medicare data
Fonte di finanziamento: National Cancer Institute (USA)  ($30.000)
Scopo della ricerca è il confronto tra dati sui trattamenti iniziali per pazienti diagnosticati di cancro colorettale raccolti in due registri tumori italiani, con analoghi dati raccolti dai registri tumori statunitensi SEER-MEDICARE. L’obiettivo principale è il confronto dei percorsi terapeutici di tumori al coloretto nel primo anno dopo la diagnosi tra Stati Uniti (utilizzando dati SEER-MEDICARE) e Italia (utilizzando dati dei Registri Tumori di Veneto e Toscana, e Schede di Dimissione Ospedaliera).
