Speakers'corner is the extra-curricular project for the students of Università della Svizzera italiana USI, Scuola universitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana SUPSI e Franklin University Switzerland FUS in collaboration with Lugano Living Lab - City of Lugano, L'ideatorio and the WeTube-RSI space.
Technological innovation and digitisation are at the heart of society and our daily lives. Therefore, the studies and research carried out in these areas are becoming increasingly valuable as opportunities for further study and discovery, both for companies and institutions and for citizens. Speakers' Corner aims to be a platform for presenting, promoting and giving voice to the research of the students of the three universities in Ticino, particularly in Lugano.
The project is the result of the City of Lugano's desire to promote concrete projects to raise awareness of digital issues by enhancing skills in the area. It is also important for the City of Lugano to set up a network of collaborations and exchanges between academics, institutions and individuals acting as facilitator and coordinator. Among the strategic objectives presented in the Lines of Development 2018-2028, in fact, Lugano is committed to promoting digitisation in all areas, with an emphasis on the training of the younger generations.
