(ANSA) - TRIESTE, 06 OTT - After Copenhagen in 2018 and Granada in 2022, Trieste will be the city of the Big Science Business Forum (BSBF) in 2024. Large international players who design and manufacture instrumentation with the latest technologies will be able to meet with technologists, researchers and managers of large research infrastructures in Trieste. In fact, the international congress is focused on technological innovation, a meeting point between research and industry that unites Europe's major Research Infrastructures.

The congress, which will take place in the Porto Vecchio conference center, will be an opportunity to meet and discuss the issues and needs in cutting-edge technologies related to Big Science, also in light of the 'major investment in research infrastructure activated in the context of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan.

Trieste won thanks to a project resulting from a shared work with the national research organization Area Science Park, ILO Network Italia, National Coordination of Industrial Liaison Officers at the major international Big Science organizations (CNR, ENEA,INAF, INFN) and PromoTurismoFvg.

This is the second major scientific event that the Julian capital - a city where the concentration of research institutions and infrastructures and the quality of researchers is very high - has been awarded in recent times. The first was Esof 2020, European Capital of Culture. BSBF 2024 is expected to attract at least a thousand people from dozens of countries with "strong tourist but also economic prospects, with spin-offs first and foremost on the city of Trieste and the whole region and, as far as we are concerned, towards all of Eastern Europe and all the countries with which we are in constant contact," Rosolen concluded.

For the president of Area Science Park, Caterina Petrillo, "the success of this candidacy is the success of the Trieste-city-of-science system with its interconnected network of scientific institutions, universities, bodies and world-class research infrastructure. Indeed, the real accelerating force of research and innovation in a hinge region of Central and Eastern Europe, such as Friuli Venezia Giulia, lies in the network of collaborations between these institutions." President Petrilli herself summarizes the city's scientific realities, beginning with Sincrotrone Elettra Trieste, which houses the international headquarters of the European CERIC-ERIC infrastructure, and the Free Electron Laser FERMI, cutting-edge research centers at the European level.
