The Association



The Association ScienzaSocietàScienza has been created to put together human and financial resources with the objective of organizing a wide range of events focused on science and its relationship with society.

The Association represents the natural evolution of the Committee ScienzasocietàScienza, which has been actively operating in Cagliari up to very recent times. In continuity with the Committee’s purposes, the Association aims at putting the general public into contact with the world of science; at re-establishing the connection between humanistic and scientific culture; at raising a deeper awareness of the transformations and changes science brings about and on how deeply it influences our daily lives.

A long-term purpose of the Association is the creation of an International Centre for Science in Sardinia.
