The new lab in Rome aims at laying down the foundations of a new research entity that will combine, in a unique conceptual space, the sciences, the arts, the public engagement, and the business, to drive innovation and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
At Sony CSL Rome we strive to give a contribution to the redesign of our societies with a transdisciplinary approach operating at very different spatial and temporal scales. From the short time-scale of the present to long-term strategic thinking. From the micro-scale of interventions (e.g., sustainable mobility, production processes, logistics, etc.) to the larger scale of more complex features (e.g., economic development, democratic practices and social dialogue, inclusion, leveraging the vocation of specific areas, etc.).
Since its first opening during the fall 2021 and after the official announcement during the Maker Faire Rome 2021, the new lab has already established three main research lines:
The researchers involved are operating together with the lab in Paris but they are also aiming at dropping the studies in the local context, collaborating with external professionals, partner companies, national authorities, and institutions.
The teams dedicated to each research line reflect Sony CSL approach to openness in science, welcoming knowledge exchanges and collaborations with colleagues, external professionals, students and other entities as triggers for innovation.
