Passion for Science – Facing global challenges
Passion for Science – Facing global challenges is a special International Symposium organized by the Italian Physical Society, in collaboration with ICTP, to celebrate the International Year of Basic Science for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD 2022) to be held in Varenna (Lake Como), in the beautiful venue of Villa Monastero, on 20 and 21 June 2022.
The speakers, all of the highest level, have illustrated how the various research institutes, scientific societies and large international laboratories in the field of physics can contribute and promote the elaboration of sustainable policies for technological development and in general for the common good. In this particular and difficult period, COVID-19 has at least made us understand the importance and impact of research. It is therefore appropriate that 2022 highlights the role of basic science in supporting sustainable development.
