The PRIN aims to develop proposals for the protection from marginalization of young generations in small island communities. It also seeks to enhance cultural heritage, develop new opportunities, and promote sustainable tourism through an approach that combines fieldwork with multidimensional and participatory interventions.
Funded by the European Union – Next Generation EU, the National Research Project (“PRIN”) involves a working group from three Italian universities: Università Roma Tre (leading institution), Università di Milano-Bicocca, and Università Europea di Roma.
The project presentation will be given by Dr. Arturo Gallia (principal investigator) and by the directors of the associated operational units, Prof. Gianluca Amatori (UER) and Prof. Stefano Malatesta (UniMiB), as well as the representatives of the involved geographic scientific laboratories, Prof. Annalisa D’Ascenzo (G. Caraci Laboratory, Roma Tre) and Prof. Gianluca Casagrande (GREAL, UER). The roundtable will also feature Prof. Claudio Cerreti, President of the Italian Geographical Society, Prof. Manfredi Merluzzi, Director of the Department of Humanities at Roma Tre, and Prof. Paola Perucchini, Director of the Department of Educational Sciences at Roma Tre. Prof. Andrea Riggio, Vice-Chancellor for Research at the Università degli Studi di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale, will also participate as a discussant.
Within “Islands4Future”, GREAL is assigned the task of carrying out a series of research activities and to provide scientific and technical services in geotechnologies for data acquisition and processing.
The meeting is open to researchers, teachers, students, along with the general public.
