The importance of synchronisation in human relationships. Shkurta Gashi, a PhD student at USI Faculty of Informatics, investigates how this element affects human behaviour.

It was observed that greater synchronisation leads to more positive emotions in this context.

The Speakers' Corner project, whose first experimental edition was held on 5 October 2020 at Palazzo dei Congressi in Lugano during the Swiss Digital Days, launches a series of short video contributions in which students tell about the projects developed for the event. Speakers' Corner is a project promoted by the City of Lugano and the Lugano Living Lab, in which USI, together with other universities in Southern Switzerland, also participated: an initiative that stems from the desire to promote concrete projects to raise awareness on digital issues by enhancing skills in the area.
