On Thursday, March 7, started the first Pint of Science (Tertulia Uciencia) of 2019 organized by Malaga University.
The activity has took place at the Molly Malone's brewery in Malaga (Spain) at 7:30 pm under the title 'Smart Devices, can we trust them? ' by NeCS researchers Davide Ferraris (ESR3) and Martin Kolar (ESR4) . They disseminate their research topics concerning trust negotiation and trust in the Internet of Things to many interested customers.
ESRs Davide Ferraris (3), Martin Kolar (4) and Daniel Bastos (11) attended Cybercamp 2018 in Malaga. During this event the ESRs engaged with other researchers and attended several lectures on the topics of Cyber Security.
Coffee with Science
The main purpose of this event is to overcome the stereotype of a scientist who is confined in a laboratory, since the secondary school students could sit with them and know the importance of their work, a knowledge that may awaken their future scientific vocations.
NeCS Project participated in the international Science Festival held in Genoa from the 25th of October to the 4th of November 2018 with the exposition "Cyber Security? We'll take care of it!".
ESR3 Davide Ferraris and ESR9 Fabio Giubilo prepared and explained the exposition to hundreds of visitors. The visitors were families and high school students and teachers. During the expositions, ESRs and Science Festival staff disseminated knowledge on Cyber Security hot topics as Privacy, Trust, Ethical Hacking, Social Engineering and Internet of Things.
The Cybersecurity day is an annual event organized by the cybersecurity lab of IIT-CNR. This edition attracted more than 200 participants from research, industry, government and civil society. More than 20 speakers discussed about innovation in cyber security and its many facets, including information sharing, cyber threat management and automotive security.
All NeCS students attended the meeting.
The fascinating journey in the world of research with BRIGHT 2017, the European Researchers' Night event in Tuscany, was back on Friday, September 28th. Also this year the great festival dedicated to research brought its protagonists in the streets and squares of the historic center of all the cities involved, and opened the doors of the laboratories to citizens who can talk with researchers, appreciate their expertise and passion and know the positive impact that the results of their work have on quality of life.
The researcher’s Night is a Europe-wide public event dedicated to science and learning. It takes place each year on the last Friday of September. Around 30 countries and over 300 cities are involved.
All the events are supported by the European Commission as a part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, to boost the careers of researchers.
Around 200 MSCA fellows got together on 7 and 8 July 2018 for an Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Satellite Event ahead of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) 2018 in Toulouse, France.
ESRs Fabio Giubilo (ESR9) and Daniel Bastos (ESR11) from British Telecom attended the event and represented the NeCS project by engaging with other MSCA students and sharing their experience.
In addition to the networking activities, the event also included a visit to the Airbus facilities and museum in Toulouse.
During the 2018 edition of British Science Week, the UK's biggest event about science, at BT labs in Adastral Park, ESRs Fabio Giubilo & Daniel Bastos & Mohamad Imad Mahaini volunteered, welcoming and explaining math-based games to children.
The event is deigned to encourage the next generation to develop a greater interest and involvement in STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) skills and, eventually, careers.
During the 12th International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST-2017), held at University of Cambridge (UK), ESR Fabio Giubilo (British Telecom) chaired the session titled "Cloud Security".
