Encounters: across sciences and humanities



Encounters: across sciences and humanities

30 November 2022 – 1 March 2023


Encounters is a new series of conversations, co-organized by the Italian Embassy and the Italian Cultural Institute in London, to explore how experts in the natural, social and human sciences approach extremely relevant and urgent topics. Each conversation will focus on one overarching theme. Approaching them from the perspective of their specific knowledge and expertise, each speaker will provide a comprehensive view of the challenges and opportunities the theme presents in their field: the conversations are open to everyone, and no prior knowledge is expected.

The six Encounters will focus of the following themes, booking links will be available two weeks prior to the event:
