Project manager Serena Bressan of Fondazione Bruno Kessler and Gabriele Baratto, researcher of the eCrime groupSchool of Law of the University of Trento, are back from the chief town of Calabria where the 32nd meeting of the Italian Society of Criminology, on the topic ofviolent relations“, took place at the “Magna Graecia” University of Catanzaro. They brought home, to Trento, a wonderful “souvenir” of their participation: the first prize – among the 60 that took part in the workshops – won for the “Best workshop presentation” on the CREEP (Cyberbullying Effects Prevention) scientific project.

The talks by Trentino researchers at the meeting were two: the first on how to prevent the possible negative effects of cyberbullying thanks to new technologies; the second, the one that won the award, illustrated the results of a study aimed at creating a platform to fight cyberbullying (“Violent relationships between young people on the Internet: learning about cyber-bullies and cyber-victims thanks to qualitative-quantitative research” – authors: Andrea Di Nicola, Gabriele Baratto, Enrico Maria Piras, Serena Bressan, Filippo Oncini).
