Fellowships for the Trieste Next International Academy
We are currently working on the calendar of events for the 2022 Edition of Trieste Next. The official program will be available online on this website.
THE 12th EDITION: “A NEW WORLD. SCIENCE AND INNOVATION FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE”. Since its first edition in 2012, Trieste Next has aimed at addressing key issues of the scientific and cultural debate: from food resources to water management, from energy to sustainability. The 2023 Edition will offer the chance to outline the scientific agenda for the coming years and propose far-reaching reflections on the new frontiers of research and innovation with a focus on sustainability. Trieste Next will thus be an opportunity to promote a fruitful dialogue between STEM disciplines, humanities and social sciences, with a calendar of over 100 events and the participation of over 300 speakers.
THEMATIC SESSIONS. Selected students for the Trieste Next International Academy will have unlimited access to three special sessions on robotics/artificial intelligence, medical sciences and biotechnologies. Each session will kick off with a guided visit to a research centre of international renown and will be followed by a program of 5-6 seminars over the course of 3 days.

OPEN-AIR LABS IN THE “CITY OF KNOWLEDGE”. As in previous editions, for the entire duration of the Festival Piazza Unità d’Italia (the main square in Trieste) will host the “City of Knowledge” Science Village. Visitors will thus be able to join over 150 activities and open-air labs curated by the whole network of science centres based in Trieste.
