ICA 3The dynamics of laws and their impact on cities and artificial intelligence were addressed by Professor Carla Ventura at the third edition of the Intercontinental Academia (ICA), held in Singapore and in Birmingham, in March 2018 and in March 2019, respectively.

As a representative of the IEA in this international interdisciplinary research project, Ventura will be at the Institute on June 17, from 2:00 pm, to talk about the topic she has been working on for two years and to share her experience of participating in the ICA. There will be a discussion of the learned lessons, including a reflection on the ways the team of participating research fellows have found to overcome the challenges of interdisciplinary work. The various possibilities for collaboration will also be approached, as well as the definition of some work fronts, the motivation to take part in the project, and the innovative format of the edition's workshops.

There will be a live broadcast on IEA's website.

The project

The ICA is an initiative of the UBIAS network that brings together young and senior researchers to study a single subject from different perspectives during two extensive meetings. The first edition, centered around "Time", was organized by the IEA and the Institute for Advanced Research at Nagoya University in 2015 and 2016. The second edition, on "Human Dignity," was promoted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Institute for Advanced Studies and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research at Bielefeld University in 2016.

The institutes for advanced study at the Nanyang Technological University and the University of Birmingham have beenthe hosts of the third and so far last edition of the project. 18 researchers with different academic backgrounds and nationalities were selected to study the different perspectives of the theme "Laws: Rigidity and Dynamics" between 2018 and 2019.
