Through PTC, Ni3 research centres are empowering young people to speak up against violence and to share their insights on the processes, the challenges and the potential of creating research-driven, pro-social computer games to end violence. You can expect high profile keynote speakers and showcases of the Ni3 video games.

About the Ni3

Ni3 takes its name from the statistic that 1 in 3 women worldwide will experience gender-based violence (GBV) in their lifetime. Ni3's mission is to make this 0 in 3. They do this by bringing together social science researchers with game developers to create innovative, interactive, anti-violence computer games. At the heart of Ni3's work is the certainty that young people have the power to change the world. By working together with the next generation we can build a future free from GBV.

Thank you for your interest in our work.

Torino-Makerere Cooperation Programme presentations

In 2004 the University of Torino established a Cooperation Agreement with Makerere University and this has been constantly renewed through the years. The cooperation promotes joint scientific and didactic activities in the field of Anthropology, Sociology and in the study and preservation of the cultural heritage of the Great Lakes Region. Research activities have been constantly supported by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Italian Ethnological Mission in Equatorial Africa.

In this framework, several Italian and Ugandan students and scholars have had the opportunity to spend a research period in the partner institution. Since 2017 the Torino-Makerere Cooperation has benefited from the financial support of the Erasmus Partner Countries Programme (EU), allowing a more systematic development of student, teacher and staff mobilities within the two-partner institution. The Erasmus Partner Countries programme has already been renewed up to 2021.

This year's Torino-Makerere Cooperation programme presentations will take place on Tuesday, 2nd October 2018 at 2 :00pm in the Quality Assurance Telepresence Centre, Senate building, Makerere University.

Programme is herewith attached.
