Introduction to nanophotonic integrated circuits

Erasmus Mundus PIXNET Masters, an EU-funded programme, coordinated by Sant’Anna School along with Aston University, Eindhoven University of Technology and Osaka University, offers another series of seminars.

Rafael Salas- Montiel (Université de Technologie de Troyes _ France) deliver this series of seminars on Nanophotonic Integrated circuits. The course aims to provide the principles for the design, and simulation of nanophotonic integrated circuit, as well as an overview for the nanofabrication in a clean room facility and nanocharacterization, specifically with near field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM).

Within the EMJMD Master's PIXNET (pixnet.santannapisa.it), visiting scholars are recruited on the basis of an outstanding academic and/or professional profile and their involvement brings added value to participants in terms of student-centered teaching/lecturing, research activities and academic/professional networking.

In addition to PIXNET students, researchers, professors and those interested in participating, can contact the PIXNET Secretariat at: pixnet@santannapisa.it 

Seminar details are available in the brochure attached.

Legality Attentive AI: Awareness Conference on Explainability of AI

To celebrate Data Protection Day, the Legality Attentive Data Scientists, with the Brussels Privacy Hub explore one of the biggest open challenges of data protection law: explainability and accountability of Artificial Intelligence. The event, with high-level stakeholders and experts, address the twists and thorns of developing legality attentive Artificial Intelligence as a standard for our societies.

Artificial Intelligence raises concerns for many fields of its actual and possible application for its risks of extending control on individuals and further unbalancing powers among individuals and\or with institutions and businesses. Keeping AIs in line with the law and with the EU fundamental values and ethical principles is more than a need, it is the footprint of the European approach and benchmarking of research and production of Artificial Intelligence -based solutions.

Explainability is often offered as an answer to many concerns related to Artificial Intelligence development and deployment. Nevertheless, explainability is not always possible yet, and explainability itself can be problematic for personal data protection.

The webinar is moderated by Giovanni ComandéFull Professor of Private Comparative Law at the Sant’Anna SchoolGianclaudio Malgieri, Associate Professor of Law & Technology at the EDHEC Business School, give introductory remarks.

Christian Baatz (Kiel University): Assessing climate policies from a justice perspective. Finance for adaptation, loss & damage and beyond

Climate Change and Future Generations - Generations - Public Ethics International Seminars; a series of seminars organised in collaboration between the Public Ethics Research Group of the DIRPOLIS Institute and the Labont (Center for Ontology) of the University of Turin. These seminars are part of the All4Climate - Italy 2021 events, promoted by the Ministry of Ecological Transition.
Live streaming on Web-Ex platform.


ABSTRACT

Climate impacts disproportionally hit the Global South where people have contributed very little to the problem. From a global justice perspective, they are entitled to support in adapting to climatic changes and remedying so called “loss and damage”. This raises the question who exactly is entitled to receiving climate finance and who ought to provide it. This talk focuses on the latter issue. Based on the climate ethics discourse it develops a duty-bearer account that in turn informs criteria for assessing policy instruments suitable to raise climate finance. It argues that it is important to make a categorical distinction between the feasibility and the desirability of a given policy and proposes fairness, effectiveness and feasibility as the main assessment components. The criteria are then applied to different policies such as carbon taxes, emissions trading schemes, border tax adjustments and the Clean Development Mechanism. After presenting some tentative results, the talk will end with an outlook on how to rework the criteria in order to assess Carbon Dioxide Removal options and policies that govern these measures.

Governance, Fragility and Insurgency in the Sahel: A Hybrid Political Order in the Making

The Istituto Affari Internazionali, in cooperation with the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI), the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies (SSSA), and the Alliance for Rebuilding Governance in Africa (ARGA), is pleased to invite you to a seminar on "Governance, Fragility and Insurgency in the Sahel: A Hybrid Political Order in the Making". Hybrid event on Zoom platform (9 December 2021 from 14.00 to 16.00 CET). Register here.


ABSTRACT

Once a region that rarely featured in debates about global security, the Sahel has become increasingly topical as it confronts the international community with intertwined challenges related to climate variability, poverty, food insecurity, population displacement, transnational crime, contested statehood and jihadist insurgencies. This policy-research meeting aims at combining different perspectives to explore the contours of political orders in the making. It focuses on the trajectory of regional security and multi-level governance over the past decade, addressing the challenges of state fragility and societal resilience in the context of increasing external intervention and growing international rivalry. Sahel experts, policy makers and scholars from the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI), the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies (SSSA), and the Alliance for Rebuilding Governance in Africa (ARGA) will discuss broader and deeper transformations of Sahelian political orders that can be neither ignored nor patched up through the reductionist narrative of the ‘war on terror’ projected onto ‘ungoverned spaces’. Building on the findings of the research project FRAGVENT (Fragile states and violent entrepreneurs: conflict, climate, refugees), political economy and historical sociological lenses will be mobilised to shed light on how extra-legal governance plays a crucial role in the deformation, transformation and reformation of political orders in a contested region at Europe’s borders. Such findings have been published in 2020 in a dedicated Special Issue of the International Spectator, journal of the Istituto Affari International (IAI) in Rome.
