"Research, Industry, Institutions: a virtuous alliance for resolving the pandemic"

May 7th, at 2:30 PM, Zoom platform

Milan, April 22, 2021 - In this period of great global health crisis, the need to inform and educate young people and citizens about the role of biotechnologies in the service of the pandemic is becoming increasingly stronger, a paradigmatic example of how the way of designing a new medicine has completely changed.

Scientists, industry, and institutions have joined forces to provide, in just one year, concrete hopes for the resolution of the pandemic, not only with medications but also with support tools such as diagnostic systems. The speed at which this solution has been reached does not compromise the safety and effectiveness of the medications produced, and that is why it is necessary to trust in science and public-private partnerships that have made all of this possible.

Communication, during a public health crisis, is crucial, as much as a medical intervention, in fact, public communication policies are a necessary medical intervention in a system affected by an "infodemic".

In this context, with the aim of providing clear, targeted, and effective communication, Women&Tech® organizes on May 7, starting at 2:30 PM, the webinar titled "Ricerca, Industria, Istituzioni: un’alleanza virtuosa per la risoluzione della pandemia".

During the event, topics ranging from the contribution of biotech to the development of vaccines and monoclonal antibodies to new formulative strategies based on nanotechnologies and research and development of diagnostic systems will be discussed, addressing issues related to intellectual property.

The final roundtable will focus on one of the lessons of the pandemic: effective collaboration between research entities, industry, and institutions is necessary to address the health emergency.

The project Ready4Future: the jobs of the future - New opportunities for young people (2009-2030) was conceived by the association Women&Tech to combine the two essential components of the future of Europe and our country: equality and youth. The goal is to contribute to transforming the current educational context into a new interpretation of training oriented not so much towards traditional skills and abilities but rather towards those of the future.
