Advanced training course in Museology, Taxonomy and Scientific Communication at the Sapienza University of Rome

The Sapienza University of Rome, in collaboration with the National Biodiversity Future Center (NBFC), presents the "Higher Training Course in Museology, Taxonomy and Scientific Communication". This course offers an extraordinary opportunity for natural science, museology and science communication enthusiasts to deepen their understanding in various key fields.

The advanced training course "Museology, Taxonomy and Scientific Communication" aims to achieve objectives in four different areas:
1. Life Sciences, Biodiversity and Genetics: You will explore the richness of life on Earth, including the ecosystem, evolution and the latest developments in genetics.
2. Museology and Digitalisation: you will learn more about the functioning of museums, the conservation of collections and the importance of digitalisation in the contemporary museum world.
3. Scientific Communication and Taxonomy: you will improve scientific communication skills and learn to systematically classify living species.
4. Research, Society and Politics: You will examine the interactions between scientific research, society and politics, enabling you to understand how political decisions are influenced by science and how science itself can be shaped by the needs of society.
