How to be a Researcher in the XXI Century - Challenges and new paradigms in a changing society

Research Area of the CNR (Conference Room) - Via Corti 12 - Milano


From 14 to 17 September will be held at the Research Area of the CNR in Milan the series of conferences "How to be a Researcher in the XXI Century - Challenges and new paradigms in a changing society" organized by CEST - Centro per l'Eccellenza e gli Studi Transdisciplinari in collaboration with the Milan office of IREA CNR.

During the 4 days, more than 20 speakers will be involved in 5 sessions, 8 workshops, and 2 social activities towards the common goal of rethinking the social role of young researchers in the face of the many challenges that await them: openness of science, ethics, gender issues, diversity and inclusion, communication, to name just a few. A panel is dedicated to each theme, framing it from a theoretical point of view, and a workshop, in which possible scenarios are discussed with the participants.

The event is organized by CEST in collaboration with the IREA Section of the CNR of Milan; supported by the Young Scholars Initiative of the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) and by Elsevier; the initiative is also supported by the project BRIDGES -- Building Reflexivity and response-ability Involving Different narratives of knowledGE and Science, funded by Fondazione Cariplo, coordinated by Irea-CNR and involving CEST and the Research Center for Science and the Arts "Pianpicollo Selvatico".

Carla Sciarra, research fellow at the DIATI of the Polytechnic of Turin and CEST member, already involved in science communication issues thanks to the project Water To Food, developed within the Polytechnic, is collaborating to the organization of the event.

It is possible to attend the Conference either in person or remotely.
