L’evento annuale di ISSNAF è un momento di incontro, dialogo e brainstorming tra la diaspora Italiana in Nord America e prestigiose personalità americane e italiane del mondo scientifico, industriale, economico, culturale e diplomatico.

Quest’anno il tema della prima giornata (17 ottobre 2015) sarà ”Innovation Through Science”, sviluppato nei diversi settori della ricerca scientifica, con la partecipazione di relatori di elevato calibro e agenzie federali americane. L’idea è di creare un confronto sull’importanza della ricerca e della scienza ai fini dell’innovazione, le grandi sfide (Life Sciences, Astrofisica, Material Sciences) e dell’impatto del trasferimento e passaggio da ricerca a innovazione sulla vita e il futuro della società.

Durante l’evento - che verrà inaugurato da S. E. l’Ambasciatore Armando Varricchio - avremo anche l’onore di assegnare l’ISSNAF Lifetime Achievement Award, ad una personalità italiana il cui il cui impegno e spirito d’innovazione hanno influenzato profondamente il mondo della ricerca e il cui lavoro ha ottenuto un notevole impatto sia in Italia sia a livello mondiale (2014 Prof. Andrew Viterbi, scopritore del ben noto Viterbi algorithm; 2015 Prof. Enrico Bombieri, emerito matematico, Fields Medal in 1974).

Quest’anno, inoltre, avremo anche il piacere di ospitare il vincitore della terza edizione del Premio Cav. Lav. Fulvio Bracco sull’Imaging Diagnostico.

Particolare attenzione è dedicata ai ricercatori italiani sotto i 40 anni, la cui formazione e carriera professionale sono al centro dell’impegno di ISSNAF. La seconda giornata (18 ottobre) sarà interamente dedicata alla celebrazione del lavoro di questi giovani, con la presentazione e la selezione dei progetti finalisti al fine dell’attribuzione dei premi ISSNAF Young Investigators ed un Career Symposium.
