Public Engagement activities are divided between personal and institutional.
The Department praises extensive dissemination activities in oral form at cultural associations (CentroScienza Association, ESOF, Circolo dei Lettori), institutions for continuing education (University of the Third Age), high schools (a network of high schools involved in the facilitation project of access to STEM and economic subjects for middle schoolgirls), but also conferences and round tables on topical economic and political issues (Biennale Democrazia) and it is at the forefront in the organization of events with a strong impact for the territory such as the International Festival of Economy.
To these are added dissemination activities in written form, for example through publication of articles and editorials on national media, in paper or electronic format. In particular, we point out the presence of numerous editorials signed by professors of the Department on "La Stampa", "Il Sole 24 ore", and on sites of great impact and diffusion such as "LaVoce.info".

On Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October 2022 UNIGHT - United citizens for research returned simultaneously throughout Europe, the event that has now become a regular appointment for anyone who wants to know the goals and challenges of research and the secrets of those who do it for a living.
The ESOMAS Department participated in the event "Digital sustainability for smart cities", a laboratory during which children and adults can propose ideas to improve climate resilience and social-environmental sustainability of their own city through a game course based on digital social innovation processes.
In 2021, the Department also participated as a partner, together with the Department of Mathematics and of Economics and Statistics, in the Mathematics + Economics Project = a Girl's game to encourage high school female students to enrol in mathematics and economics study paths, in order to reduce the gender gap in the aforementioned university cohorts.
As regards to the institutional activities, two main Public Engagement activities have been identified:
- video clips for the dissemination of the contents of one's research;
- guest lectures open to all, where guests from outside the university world are invited to tell how the skills acquired over the years of university training are put into practice.
Both activities are available on this website and on the Department's social channels.
The ESOMAS Department organizes institutional activities aimed at disseminating the research topics of our members (ESOMAS research video clips) and through a Guest Lectures program that sees professionals and scholars as protagonists hosted within our courses to tell in actual fact how to put in practice the skills acquired while studying in the real world.
Guest Lectures are open to everyone.
