Battle of Brains is a two-days scientific initiative on debate about the relations between Humanities and STEM, with a focus on the professional profile of the engineer.
The initiative was organized by our partner Irene Spada with with some other PhD students from the University of Pisa, last December 6-7.
Vito Giordano, PhD Candidate of the University of Pisa, participated in the debate to share the perspectives of ASSETs+ and another European project ENCORE (European Network for Catalysing Open Resources in Education), with a talk titled “The entanglement of technical and transversal skills in emerging fields”. In particular, he presented the methodological approach of the project, highlighting 3 main strengths:
- Data: It is important to collect data to support the decision-making process with objective evidence.
- Method: We should rely on structured methods to analyse the data and leading the decision-making process.
- Results: Technical expert knowledge should need to interpret the insights resulted from the analysis.
Our partner Massimo Scalvenzi, Engineering & Technology Processes Manager at Leonardo Company, also participated. He presented the Leonardo approach in bringing society needs in product development and integrating different competences in project team to face the challenges of current society.
