Why We’re Here

Where you grow up shouldn’t determine your future success. Yet all too often, young people are put at a disadvantage because they lack the quality education, mentorship and opportunities that pave the road to successful STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) careers.

Accademia di Gagliato Globale (AGG) was founded on the principle that talent is universal, but opportunity is not. We seek to close that opportunity gap by supporting STEM professionals who return to their home communities as role models and ambassadors for STEM ingenuity. Our mission is to inspire young people in disadvantaged communities or who would otherwise not be exposed to STEM opportunities and success stories. AGG members (accademici) are charged with opening the door to the unlimited possibilities in STEM education and careers.

What We Do

Who We Are

AGG is an association of STEM professionals who ignite curiosity, educate, and inspire young people through innovative initiatives that combine community education and high-level expert collaboration. Join AGG>>

AGG was founded in 2019 by Paola and Mauro Ferrari as an affiliate of L’Accademia di Gagliato delle NanoScienze, a nonprofit cultural and scientific association based in Gagliato (CZ), Italy.

Since 2008, L’Accademia di Gagliato delle NanoScienze has produced NanoGagliato, an annual invitation-only nanotechnology conference and think tank focused on translational innovations. NanoGagliato comprises five days of events to encourage discussions and collaborations among world experts, and dissemination and awareness among the lay public, about nanotechnology and nanomedicine.

Where We Are

Gagliato is a small town in the southernmost region of the Italian peninsula. It is nestled on a hillside, a ten-minute drive from the sea, and a world away from the pace and lifestyle of the technology sector.
