The Cosmos Award was instituted to promote scientific culture in Italy and in particular in the South of Italy by instituting an international prize each year for the best work of scientific divulgation published in Italian in the sectors of physics, mathematics and astronomy.
In Italy women researchers are only 35% of the total, according to the OECD - Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, a very small percentage even if the trend is growing.
Artainment@school is an educational project carried out by Artainment Worldwide Shows and Bracco Foundation, in accordance with the Lazio Regional Scholastic Office to publicise in schools a new method of publicising the artistic heritage.
As part of progettoDiventerò, Bracco Foundation began, in 2017, collaboration with the University of Konstanz in the Federal German Republic to spread knowledge of the Italian language and culture among university and secondary school students in the area bounded by the cities of Konstanz, Singen and Rudolfszell where the largest overseas production site of Bracco is housed.
The project took concrete form in action targeting the secondary schools of the territory that teach Italian, with three prizes for the best students of the school year 2017/18 consisting of a course of Italian language and culture in Florence in July; the organisation, in collaboration with the Department of Romance Languages and literature of the University of Konstanz, the "Italientag" seminar in the autumn on Italian language and culture and certain activities throughout the territory, such as theatre and cinema.
