The Trieste LEC starts from the existence of Trieste City of Knowledge (triesteconoscenza.it), the network promoted by the Trieste City Council, since 2007, joining local authorities, scientific and research and higher education institutions, located in Trieste, in order to foster dialogue among its players.
The Trieste LEC will create and make more widely available the opportunities that the various institutions organize and offer to schools.
Potentially each student will have the opportunity to interact more frequently with the institutions that produce knowledge, to be aware of what research means, to consider knowledge as a possible career, to be able to deepen one's interests on specific topics, to know scientists and experts personally by establishing an authentic relationship with them.
The Trieste LEC will be a truly open and barrier-free system of access to knowledge, based on the existing network of Trieste Città della Conoscenza and the effective contribution of schools, teachers, students, companies, associations, decision makers. The focus will be on inclusion at all levels and diversity. The Trieste LEC aims at having a positive and long-term impact on our community, promoting dialogue between science and society, as well as making the scientific community itself more cohesive.
The Trieste LEC will create an open system to access to culture and knowledge, where each student, individually or with the school, will have the opportunity to interact more frequently with institutions that produce knowledge, be aware of what it means to do research, consider knowledge as a possible career, be able to deepen their interests on specific topics, get to know personally female scientists and experts by establishing an authentic relationship with them. All this would contribute to increasing the science capital of our young citizens, creating accessible and non-intimidating role models, and making the dialogue between science and society more real, as well as making the scientific community itself more cohesive.
Going to school in Trieste should be significantly different from going to school anywhere else, thanks to the existence of the Trieste system of knowledge. The LEC aims precisely at this result.
