"The United States, more precisely Philadelphia, and Italy, with Lombardy, Rome and Naples, are joining for the first time, giving way to an international network for research between Virtual Reality and Cognitive Impairment. A challenge to eradicate fears and open new doors for young people "- Angela Romano, president of the Business School and Project Contact Person. Neurological diseases and cognitive disorders are the cause of malaise not only for the many people affected but also for those close to them; due to the fact that these situations represent an everyday reality for many families, Mondo Internazionale decided to engage a collaboration with Scuola Impresa, SHRO and CNR-ICAR to give young university students the opportunity to collaborate with professionals in the sector, both in the United States and in Italy. Participation in the project allows to work for a period of two weeks at the research laboratories of S.H.R.O, at the College of Science and Technology of Temple University of Philadelphia. The participants are placed in a research team composed of 10 university students who will join a team of researchers from the research centre, under the expert guidance of Professor Antonio Giordano. Genetics, cancer research, Bio-innovation, Biotechnologies, Bioinformatics, Epigenetics, Psychology and Virtual Reality are the fields involved and ad hoc research projects are created to allow participants to be guided to discover the world of research. The project offers great opportunities for training and professional growth, especially since the candidates will return to Italy from the United States where new phases of study and research will be developed to continue the project.

The project is divided into three main phases which see the cooperation of a team of young people who have conceived and supervised all the phases of the initiative from the beginning. The figure of the aggressor is the first subject analysed, through different magnifying lenses such as machismo and sexism, internalized machismo and violence as physical abuse. The second phase of the initiative concerns the woman victim of trafficking and violence, also telling the realities on the territory that deal with the recovery of subjects involved in it. The third phase, that which is defined as the "normative psychology", is oriented in particular on the comparison of the regulations on the issue in the international context, on the generational comparison on the topic regarding the Italian situation and on the conception of feminism as revolution of our century.
