AAAS Annual meeting
Washington 4-18 February 2019
SCIENCE TRANSCENDING BOUNDARIES
Thanks to an input by side of the EC, RISEWISE submitted an application for a Symposium to be held at this important meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, held in USA each year in a different town, and hosting around 5500 among scientists, engineers, journalists, policy makers. Next year the meeting will take place in Washington during the month of February.
The title of the application submitted by the project is:
Women and disability: an interdisciplinary European perspective
The symposium proposal contains the intervention of 3 speakers (Cinzia Leone, Cristina Candito and Juan Pavon) and 1 moderator from REA, the Project Officer of RISEWISE, Gianluca Coluccio.
If accepted, the speech will be about three different topics, all strictly permeated by women and disabilities issues:
1) Women with disabilities: an interdisciplinary European perspective
2) Integration of drawings and images for an inclusive use of cultural heritage
3) Women with disabilities: technology and responsible research in Europe
The response about the possible acceptance of the symposium will arrive during next July: fingers crossed!!!
