Maria Vittoria Gargiulo & Anna Zalewska
Maria Vittoria Gargiulo
Other Languages: English
My research activity develops around two main branches: i) Multi-risk analysis and risk pathways identification; ii) Science Communication and its evaluation, particularly focused on risk perception. I have almost a decade of experience in teaching from high school to University. Furthermore, I organized the S4CE project summer school NO RISK NO ENERGY for the University of Salerno. Finally, I am a Positive Peace Activator trained by Rotary International and the Institute of Economics and Peace.
I have always been very interested in cross-cultural confrontation and mediation even though, as you can see from my curriculum, my chosen field of study and research is hard-science. On the other end, my field of professional intervention concerns not only the applicative aspects of research but also the area of cultural "absorption" of scientific notions. In other words, I deal with social representations and cultural mediation. Moreover, being involved in EU funded project I work every day with colleagues from all over Europe, with different backgrounds and interests, that I have to meet. A situation that is replicated in my associative life that places me in a series of international and intercultural relations that in fact requires mediation skills.
The added value of my associative life is precisely this: striving to combine differences and make them into resources: personal, relational, and community.

For the last 10+ years, I’ve been living and working in Krakow (Poland), but I am originally from Kharkiv (Ukraine), which helps me to focus on cross-border, cultural and business-related disputes.
I received academic training in Sociology (Media Communications and PR) and did my specializing postgraduate program in Mediation and ADR. Later, I conducted several practical trainings in business negotiations and crisis intervention. As part of my previous jobs, I know how to engage, supervise, and facilitate parties for them to reach their business goals through mutually beneficial agreements.
Additionally, in response to the increased instability and insecurity, I engage in resolving intercultural conflicts; I also work with trauma and loss through self-regulation techniques. Since the situation in the world is quite volatile, I do hope to be able to help different people and/or businesses understand each other by using every skill I have.
