Città della Scienza

Pisa, Italy

Overview

Fondazione Idis-Città della Scienza is a non-profit organisation that has among its founding members the Nobel Prize Laureates; Rita Levi Montalcini and Carlo Rubbia. It boasts a number of scientific collaborations with major museums and scientific Institutions in Europe and worldwide. Città della Scienza started its activities in 1987 and was completed in 2001, in the western part of Naples, with a structure dedicated to the dissemination of scientific and technological culture, as well as to the innovation of the educational and business systems.
One of the main values of Città della Scienza is to set up a new form of scientific citizenship, bridging the gap between science and society, in order to bring the science outside of the realm of laboratories through an open dialogue with citizens and stakeholders. Hence, Città della Scienza aims at creating an efficient relationship between science, innovation and society for the economic and social development of the region and fostering social inclusion through social innovation. Città della  Scienza is based on a new knowledge-based sustainable development model, focused on: science education, environmental and cultural resources valorisation, innovation advanced services, research promotion, experimentation and production of intangible assets.
