Italian research day in the world



Italian research day in the world

On 15th April, which is also the birth anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci, Italy celebrates the Italian Research day in the World. An initiative promoted by the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research, in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Ministry of Health, in order to enhance the work of Italian researchers and academics abroad.

In the framework of enhancing and promoting Italian excellences in the fields of research, science and technology, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has prepared, in collaboration with major Italian public research stakeholders, a communication campaign which is also available on the social media channels of the Embassy of Italy in Cyprus.

In this context, to highlight the importance of cooperation in the scientific and technological field between Italy and Cyprus, the Embassy of Italy in Nicosia, in collaboration with the Cyprus Institute, invites you at the webinar entitled “Nature’s Voice: switching from quantity to quality in the post-pandemic society”. The webinar will take place on 26th April 2021 by Professor Piero Formica, founder of the International Entrepreneurship Academy and Senior Research Fellow at the Irish Innovation Value Institute of Maynooth University.

The conference is part of the so-called Enrico Fermi Lectures, co-organised by the Cyprus Institute and the Embassy of Italy in Nicosia. Its objective is to attract important Italian scholars in Cyprus to talk about important scientific matters thanks to which, in previous editions, numerous issues have been elaborated, such as the relationship between science and Europe 60 years after the Treaty of Rome (professor Massimo Inguscio), the scientific-technological developments in studies and the conservation of cultural heritage (professor Antonio Sgamellotti), the future of urban settlements (professor Federico Butera).

The second part of the webinar will be comprised of a panel discussion dedicated on “quality economy” in Cyprus and apart from Professor Formica, various Italian and Cypriot researchers and innovators engaged in Cyprus, as well as representatives from local authorities will take part.

Further details will be available soon.
