The twelfth edition of 'Trieste Next 2023' took place from 22 to 24 September, with Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste once again being one of the leading institutes.
The festival, entitled 'A New World, Science, Culture, Innovation for a Sustainable Future', registered, as usual, thousands of Italian and foreign visitors, a variegated audience that participated in the numerous activities in the square at the various events, workshops and conferences.

Fully booked the two conferences coordinated by Elettra.
Research frontiers in the treatment of brain tumours
Moderator: Roberto Pugliese, Deputy General Coordinator and Director of the IT Division of Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste President of Glioblastoma.IT ODV. With: Elena Longo, Researcher at SYRMEP beamlineof Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Daniela Cesselli, Associate Professor in Pathology – University of Udine; Marco Vindigni, Medical Director at the Operative Unit of Neurosurgery – Department of Head, Neck and Neuroscience – ASUFC Udine, and with the comedians “I PAPU”, Andrea Appi and Ramiro Besa.
Researchers on glioblastoma stem cells, one of the most aggressive and lethal forms of brain tumor, illustrated the biological mechanisms underlying the tumor for the development of new therapeutic approaches and, together with X-ray tomography experts were interviewed with a view to encouraging comparison and sharing between science, society and culture on problems related to brain tumors. An overview of research and clinical practice in the treatment of these tumours was also given. The innovative format of interweaving science and theatre involved the comic duo 'I PAPU', who in the role of 'facilitators' wrung a few smiles by simplifying the topics addressed and making them more accessible to the audience, in a combination of science, comedy and irony.. avi

 Proteins, supercomputing and space stations: researching new drugs
Moderator Paola Storici, Researcher at Elettra and head of the Protein Laboratory. With Emiliano Biasini, Associate Professor at the Department of Cell, Computational and Integrated Biology – Trento University;Pietro Faccioli, Associate Professor at the 'G. Occhialini' Department of Physics - Milano-Bicocca University; Marta S. Semrau, Researcher at Protein Facility of Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste.
Discovering new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases is a challenge for modern medicine. It was described how research tools that combine experimental data with supercomputing simulations help to obtain unique information for the development of new drugs. Lafora disease and the mechanisms of prion diseases were mentioned, illustrating new approaches for treating them. Finally, it was explained how experiments carried out on the international space station can help us obtain new drugs. avi

In the large exhibition area in Piazza Unità, organized with Area Science Park, Istituto Officina dei Materiali CNR-IOM, International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB), Fondazione Italiana Fegato - FIF and in collaboration with Idrostudi and Alifax, Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, prepared three activities/labs for the general public.

“And there was light! Lasers, microscopes and X-rays to analyse matter.”

With Sumea Klokic, CERIC-ERIC Post-Doc researcher at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Benedetta Marmiroli, Senior Researcher at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste on the CERIC-ERIC SAXS beamline and the DXRL beamline; Christian Morello, Engineer at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Barbara Sartori, Senior Researcher at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste on the CERIC-ERIC SAXS beamline; Philipp Aldo Wieser, PhD Student at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste on the CERIC-ERIC SAXS beamline.

The activity, specially designed for high school students, was conducted by SAXS beamline researchers. Starting with basic physical phenomena, such as diffraction, and moving on to more advanced analysis techniques, the students were called using microscopes, lasers, vacuum instruments and software for reconstructing the conformation of objects and molecules, to participate first-hand in shedding light on the structure of matter. They were taken into the fascinating world of the analysis of matter at the micro and nanoscopic level, made possible by the use of synchrotron radiation.

“Bacteria: can we exploit them?”
With Valentina Bonanni, Scientist of the TwinMic beamline at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Alessandra Gianoncelli, Head of the TwinMic beamline at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Milan Zizic, PostDoc of the TwinMic beamline at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste.
The activity carried out by the TwinMic beamline research team captivated not only the young but also the older visitors by illustrating through play how using feltpens visible only under UV light we can see things otherwise not visible, and how in the same way illuminating cable bacteria with UV light makes them visible to the human eye. Using pictures and videos, they explained what cable bacteria are, their special features and what they could be used for in the future.

"Tune the metronomes!"
With Cecilia Blasetti, International Project Officer at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Carlo Callegari, Head of the LDM Beamline at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Angela Montanaro, Phd Researcher in Q4Q labs; Ettore Paltanin, PhD Student at EIS-TIMEX at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste; Giuseppe Penco, Head of FERMI Machine Operation and member of the FERMI Project Office. Senior Accelerator Physicist. The laboratory revealed how a free-electron laser is switched on through a synchronisation experiment using 8 musical metronomes, empty cans, an elastic plane and a small laser. The devices set off at the same speed, at different times, managed to align.

Finally Elettra welcomed 80 students from the Trieste Next International Academy who come for a visit. Divided into four groups, the students saw the Elettra and FERMI experimental halls where they lingered over few beamlines to learn more about the technical and scientific aspects of the research carried out and the techniques used.
The visit is part of the intensive 3-day English-language programme designed specifically for international bachelor, master and PhD students, which grants access to over 60 talks, lectures and workshops with renowned scientists, researchers and practitioners as part of the Festival, including 3 special sessions on artificial intelligence/robotics, medical sciences and biotechnology.
