What we doAGG in Action
From scientific conferences, to youth STEM education festivals, to innovative projects and networking, AGG makes science come to life in small communities around the world. Our passion is connecting people to the science that could change their lives, promoting a free flow of ideas between lay people and STEM experts, and giving children the STEM opportunities, inspiration and role models that they might otherwise not have access to in their hometowns.
Our signature event is NanoGagliato, the original AGG nanomedicine conference in the small southern Italian town of Gagliato, Italy. NanoGagliato brings together nanoscientists, medical professionals and researchers, humanitarians, thought leaders, government officials, educators, venture capitalists and more to gather with Gagliato residents for informal but intense discussions on scientific and humanitarian challenges.
A highlight of the conference is the concurrent children’s event, NanoPiccola, where conference speakers and volunteers create an engaging science fair for local youths. Children and teenagers perform experiments, learn about nanotechnology, and meet the scientists and other professionals from the conference, often forming long-term mentorship relationships with role models poised to educate and inspire.
Now, inspired by the NanoGagliato and NanoPiccola success story, AGG chapters and accademici are creating similar events in communities across the world. Check back as we add more events!

AGG Around The World
At AGG, we believe every person in the world should have access to science information, inspiration, and education. We are pleased to welcome new chapters and accademici to the AGG family and support their efforts as they create STEM events in their communities.
