The conference programme is available online here via EasyChair.

Poster session

The in-person poster session is scheduled on Wednesday 15 September at 18:00. Poster presenters can send their poster to Saúl Pérez González (saul dot perezgonzalez at unito dot it) by no later than 8 September. Posters should be sent in A0 format and as a PDF file. We will then arrange the printing and bring the posters to the conference site. Local staff will assist you with putting up and down the posters. This service is free of charge.

If online presenters wish their poster to be available on site, we can print it, too.

"Science Policies, Research Funding, and the Future of the University"

In the morning of Wednesday 15 September there will be a pre-conference roundtable organised by Barbara Osimani. This roundtable presents current debates around science policies, research funding allocation and the future of the university, from diverse epistemological perspectives, not only in view of improving fairness towards the underprivileged, and the efficiency of the system, but also in order to foster a new role for science and research institutions in society.

    • Sabina Leonelli (Exeter)
    • Richard Pettigrew (Bristol)
    • Marco Ottaviani (Milan)
    • Andrea Saltelli (Barcelona)


    • Angela Liberatore (ERC)
    • Jean-Pierre Bourguignon (ERC)
    • Ferruccio Resta (CRUI)
