CASSANDRA 2021 will seek to establish permanent synergies between the world of science and technology with the most important social and political realities of this century.
Each aspect of the conference will employ three principal pillars, collectively called the TAP:
Technology and science that offer scientific answers to challenges concerned with Climate Change, Mass Migration caused by developing natural conditions and armed conflict, and the role of women in the development of technology and as a beneficiary of the subsequent effects will be examined.
The Arts will be employed to provide stimulating visual content presented in parallel to the oral content of the event. Consisting of an Art Exhibition, jointly organised with the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, it will connect technology detail to emotional, Mediterranean cultural stimuli to create Awareness.
Climate Change, Health, Migration, Conflict and Gender are about People. The complex interrelationship between the identified factors will be explored, and the seeds of long-term visions converted into effective policies will be presented.
Dr Serena Caucci will join Panel 10, ‘Science and Social Consensus in the Mediterranean’ on 17 November.
Dr Caucci’s contribution will cover the question: How do we establish the Mediterranean Region as a leader in science and technology addressing the relationship between Climate Change and Health, Migration, Conflict and Gender Inequality?
She will explore the ‘migration-climate change-health nexus’ and science and technology’s role in fostering policy implementation.
