Bracco Foundation has launched a national call: “Beyond Borders: knowledge unites people”

Friday, July 30, 2021

Bracco Foundation has launched a national call - entitled "Beyond Borders: knowledge unites people" - and the project is in cooperation with the Commissioner's Office for Italy's participation in Expo 2020 Dubai. The call really focuses on the Diventerò (I will become) community, which is filled with talented young people who are also winners of scholarships, bursaries and grants for research projects from the Bracco Foundation.

Each participant is required, based on his or her area of specialisation or educational background with the Foundation, to produce a video message in Italian or English explaining how commitment, studying and creativity play a specific role in overcoming any distance or stereotype. Given we are living in a period of limited interaction, the Foundation is seeking to highlight the fundamental role played by knowledge, which has always united people.

Winners who are aged 18 and over will be able to take part in Expo 2020 Dubai, either as part of Bracco Foundation events or during training initiatives organised by the Italy Pavilion.

Winners who are not yet 18 will be able to take part digitally in high-profile educational initiatives organised by the Commissioner's Office for Italy's participation in the World Expo.

This project is an example of virtuous public-private cooperation to foreground Italian excellence and the wealth of talented people in the country by giving them the opportunity to engage with some of the major challenges of the present.
