Human development is a complex process under the influence of myriad of factors. In order to fully grasp the nature of this process researchers have to establish comprehensive models of human development including both genetic and environmental factors, and importantly the interaction among them. In this symposium, thanks to the collaboration between the University of Trento (Italy) and the Nagasaki Medical School (Japan), speakers from multidisciplinary research fields including developmental psychology, neuroscience,  genetics and information technology are invited from Italy and Japan to talk about their cutting-edge research programs dedicated to this goal, promoting dialogue among researchers from different discipline and cultural background


This summit is open to everyone interested in it. Applications are not required.
