Lecture Series “Law and Science”

The model of European integration, provided under the EU institutional texts (as Europe 2020), imposes an intensive reflection on the relationships between scientific research and its context, from the legal, ethic, economic and social points of views.
The Lectures series of the Centre of Excellence are aimed to debate about the relationships between Research, Innovation and Society and to establish a permanent forum, involving scholars and experts from different Countries.
The Lecturers are also the occasion to debate and to disseminate the activities of the Centre, involving young researchers and operators.

1st Lecture: Social and legal responsibility of the Researchers

Perugia, 20 june 2016
Scientific board: Roberto Cippitani (Università degli Studi di Perugia), Valentina Colcelli (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche), Cristiano Perugini (Università degli Studi di Perugia)
Project Management: Rossana Riccini (Università degli Studi di Perugia)

The 2016 Lecture is focused on legal consequences arising from the Research activities.
In particular the Science as freedom and its legal limits are examined in order to respect the other fundamental freedoms. Thus scientist and jurists will identify some hypothesis of liability arising from the research activities (in particular, with respect to the prediction of natural disasters, the biomedical research, the acces to genetic resources).
