On April 18, 2018 Prof. Anna Maria Porcelli and Prof. Giuseppe Gasparre from UNIBO Coordination Team were invited to take part at the Symposium entitled “Biology at UNIBO: results and future perspectives” held at the Academy of Sciences of the Bologna Institute. During the symposium, they had the opportunity to talk about the European research networks, in particular H2020-MSCA-ITN program. Their presentation was mainly focused on TRANSMIT project. The audience included not only academics and students, but enlarged also to the general public. This is the first scientific event in Bologna during which TRANSMIT has been officially presented to a wide audience.
The symposium was part of a series of initiatives organised by the Academy of Sciences with the aim of analysing the scientific paths undertaken by UNIBO researchers in the period between the early 50s and the beginning of the new century.
The initiative did not aim to self-celebrate the positive phase that the University of Bologna has undergone throughout its millennial history, but rather to highlight:
- the results achieved by its research at both national and international level;
- the scientific networks created and built around these activities;
- the related training activity;
- the relations with companies, public institutions and other sectors of the social life.
The symposium was meant not only as a nostalgic reconstruction of the past, but also as a fruitful moment up for discussion about the future developments of research and the possible intersections between technology, science and everyday life: research and training are still called to perform important tasks in knowledge society.
