The role of research in scientific development - Seminar



The role of research in scientific development - Seminar

On the occasion of the 2022 Sustainable Development Festival, the Italian Cultural Institute in NY in collaboration with the New York Chapter of the International Association of Italian Researchers (AIRI) presents a seminar that aims to highlight the role of Italian research in sustainable development. The event will involve Italian researchers who work in the fields of plant biology, climate sciences, and social sciences, in collaboration with research institutes in Africa and Asia. Their research experiences will provide insights into the role of interdisciplinary, collaborative, and inclusive research in achieving goals 2,4,13 and 17 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Scientific research plays a key role in achieving sustainable development goals. The COVID-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated how science, emerging technologies, and scientific communication provide vital resources to face global challenges. UNESCO has defined 2022 as the International Year of Basic Research for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD2022) to emphasize the importance of basic research.
