2nd Bilateral meeting Italy-Slovenia on the role of research in the society 

Ljubljana, April 18th, 2018

Maurizio Fermeglia partecipa a Lubiana al "2nd Bilateral Research Day Italy-Slovenia" - 18 aprile 2018
 

Il Rettore dell'Università di Trieste, parteciperà domani a Lubiana, al secondo incontro bilaterale Italia-Slovenia sul ruolo della ricerca nella società.

Saranno presenti rappresentanti dei ministeri della Scienza di entrambi i Paesi, rappresentanti delle università e delle istituzioni ed imprese scientifiche.

Il Rettore di Trieste svolgerà una relazione introduttiva, parlando subito dopo il Ministro della Scienza di Slovenia, Maja Makovec Brenčič ed il Sottosegretario di Stato MIUR, Vito De Filippo. 

Le interazioni tra scienza, tecnologia e società giocano un ruolo predominante nell’evoluzione dei due Paesi e questo ruolo dovrebbe espandersi ulteriormente nel prossimo futuro, con significative ricadute anche nel campo produttivo. Diversi segnali infatti indicano questa convergenza.

La Slovenia e l'Italia, insieme, hanno la possibilità di costruire una significativa massa critica di ricercatori e innovatori per assumere un ruolo guida in questo scenario, a causa delle loro preesistenti intense relazioni scientifiche e culturali e della loro posizione chiave in Europa, come porta per il Mediterraneo e le regioni del Danubio.

L'incontro del 18 aprile, si concentrerà sulla situazione delle collaborazioni nei tre settori ERC (Fisica e Ingegneria, Scienze della vita, e Scienze sociali e umanistiche): verranno presentate e discusse storie di successo di collaborazioni esistenti e progetti futuri.

Lo scopo dell'incontro è quello di migliorare le collaborazioni tra i due paesi nei settori dell'istruzione superiore, della scienza e della tecnologia su temi che hanno un forte impatto sulla società.

The interactions among science, technology and society already play a major role in the evolution of our countries and this role is expected to further expand in the near future. Several signals are indicating this convergence: we could mention the societal challenges-driven pillar of Horizon 2020 and FP9, but also the relevant research investments in this direction in the US and in China. Societal challenges cannot be tackled by a single-discipline approach: they require a much broader multidisciplinary approach involving different way of thinking and the contribution of different cultural backgrounds. 
Slovenia and Italy, together, have the possibility to build a significant critical mass of researchers and innovators to take a leading role in this scenario, due to their pre-existing intense scientific and cultural relationships and their key position in Europe, as a door to the Mediterranean and the Danube regions. 
The event aims at presenting our strategic research and innovation agendas, the key enabling technologies and the available (human, material and intangible) resources that can be used to tackle the major societal challenges facing the two countries. Furthermore, commonalities and synergies among the smart specialization strategies developed in different regions of Italy and Slovenia could be identified, with a view to foster networking and facilitate collaborations for designing and implementing joint projects. 
The expected output of the meeting is to enhance collaborations between the two countries in the domains of higher education, science and technology on themes having a strong impact on the society by:
a.      the identification of interdisciplinary themes in areas where collaborations between the two countries already exist, such as, e.g., energy, environment, cultural and natural heritage, new and advanced materials, health, water, agro-food;
b.      the upgrade of research infrastructures of common interest and/or the enhancement of the use of the existing ones, to make open access of Italian and Slovenian researchers to these resources more effective and efficient; 
c.      the involvement of the stakeholders, such as research performing institutions and companies (large enterprises and SMEs), which will help identifying actions in the domains of higher education, science and technology enabling the enhancement of the quality of life, the protection of the environment (with a particular emphasis on the seas), and the social and cultural growth of the citizens of Italy and Slovenia. 

Two ERC project principal investigator have been invited to the meeting to describe their projects and report their experiences. The meeting will focus on  the situation of the collaborations in the three ERC sectors (Physics and Engineering, Life Sciences and Social Science and humanities): success stories of existing collaborations and future projects will be presented and discussed.
