The Impact of Physics on the Italian Economy

posted Aug 13, 2014, 1:25 AM by Alberto Mengoni   [ updated Aug 13, 2014, 1:26 AM ]

Report by the Italian Physical Society

La Società Italiana di Fisica annuncia oggi la pubblicazione di un importante studio su “L’impatto della fisica nell’economia italiana” (“The impact of physics on the Italian economy”). Si tratta di uno studio senza precedenti nel nostro Paese, che rivela per la prima volta in maniera quantitativa quanto sia fondamentale il contributo all’economia italiana di tutti i settori aziendali, industriali e commerciali “basati sulla fisica”, specie in termini di produttività.

Programma Nazionale per la Ricerca 2014-2020

posted Feb 6, 2014, 6:02 PM by Alberto Mengoni   [ updated Feb 6, 2014, 6:02 PM ]

Roma, 31 gennaio 2014

Rilanciare la ricerca in Italia, avviare Grandi Progetti Nazionali di innovazione, creare nuova occupazione, favorire la crescita dell'autonomia dei nostri ricercatori e il trasferimento non solo di tecnologie e brevetti, ma anche di competenze, all'interno di una cornice Paese.

Sono alcuni degli obiettivi del nuovo Programma Nazionale per la Ricerca (PNR), che è stato illustrato oggi in Consiglio dei Ministri dal Ministro dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca, Maria Chiara Carrozza.
Il nuovo PNR, che si vuole trasformare da triennale a settennale (2014-20) per allinearsi con il Programma Quadro europeo Horizon 2020, è il frutto di una consultazione molto ampia portata avanti dal MIUR in collaborazione con il MISE, che sta coinvolgendo tutti gli stakeholder maggiori, pubblici e privati, centrali e regionali, raccogliendo finora 2.145 manifestazioni di interesse. Il Programma è il risultato quindi di un grande impegno di ascolto, coordinamento e internazionalizzazione e punta a definire un sostanziale cambio di rotta rispetto alle politiche degli ultimi anni, con l'obiettivo di rimettere il sistema della ricerca al centro dei meccanismi di creazione di ricchezza culturale, sociale ed economica del Paese.
Il Programma identifica un piano d'azione attento alle sfide maggiori che la società contemporanea propone, identificate a livello comunitario, e al tempo stesso frutto di una declinazione nazionale di quelle sfide, che emerge dalla strategia di specializzazione intelligente dei territori. Le sfide individuate sono 11:

  • Scientific and cultural progress
  • Health, demographic change and wellbeing
  • European Bio-economy Challenges
  • Secure, clean and efficient energy
  • Smart, green and integrated transport
  • Climate action, resource efficiency and raw materials
  • Europe in a changing world - inclusive, innovative and reflective societies
  • Space and astronomy
  • Secure societies - protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens
  • Restoring, preserving, valuing & managing the European Cultural Heritage, Creativity
  • Digital Agenda

Tre sono gli assi prioritari sui quali il Programma si muove: a) lo sviluppo e l'attrazione di capitale umano altamente qualificato, da inserire nel tessuto produttivo del Paese; b) l'identificazione di un numero limitato di importanti progetti tematici (con il corredo delle rispettive infrastrutture) a forte impatto sul benessere dei cittadini; c) la promozione, anche attraverso il trasferimento di conoscenza e competenze, della capacità d'innovare e di competere da parte del sistema delle imprese, in particolare delle piccole e piccolissime.

Il MIUR prevede di investire circa 900 milioni di euro l'anno (6,3 miliardi in 7 anni) per la realizzazione del Programma. A questi si aggiungeranno le risorse destinate al PNR dagli altri Ministeri o Enti finanziatori.

Entro 60 giorni dall'approvazione del PNR da parte del CIPE, verranno costituiti dei Comitati di Programma (CP) specifici per ciascuna linea di intervento, formati da rappresentanti dei principali enti pubblici e privati partecipanti a quell'intervento, in primo luogo le Regioni, che ne definiranno linee guida e programmi.

PROGRAM

GENERAL INFORMATION 
The ageing of the population is one of the main challenges for the future twenty or thirty years for the industrialized and developing countries. In this complex framework, technologies and related scientific knowledge already have and will have a growing meaningful role in the identification of problems and opportunities for the development of future scenarios in an Ageing Society. 

Intergenerational issues and common living spaces (houses, cities and the related infrastructural interfaces) reveal new meanings in interactions due to the impact of information and communication technologies (ICT), and offer the opportunity to develop a multidisciplinary approach to the challenge of the Ageing Society. 

The Summer School is promoted by the PhD School of Computer Science of the University of Milano-Bicocca and by Higher Educational Project “ALIAS – Alta Formazione e Internazionalizzazione nell’Ageing Society)”. The aim of the School is to gather Ph.D. and Master students as well as Post‐Doctoral researchers (from Italian and foreign Universities and Research Centres) for a residential intensive one-week program allowing to acquire knowledge and methods to face problems and exploit opportunities related to the demographics affecting our society and the impact of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in shaping our technological and social future. 

In the wide range of problems and scientific/technological opportunities coming from different disciplines, the School will focus on two main topics: 

- the design of technologies for the aging society that has to take the elderly people as the focus of attention to define methods of investigation, requirements, functionalities and deployment of technologies that have to be put to work with different purposes and in various contexts such as the home, the healthcare, the socialization, the digital divide (the IN-context, in the school organisation) 

- the possibilities represented by the employment of models and technologies that can support the design and organization of urban spaces, aged-friendly housing, buildings, facilities and services stimulating participation and active ageing by providing adequate levels of comfort and accessibility for aged citizens (the OUT-context). 

In order to address in a multidisciplinary way the needs and the opportunities related to the IN and OUT contexts, a series of lectures on demographics, economics, epidemiology, psychological issues and social science studies will be offered to the participants to complement their understanding of the process of ageing population.
