Which is the relationship between chemistry and our daily life? Which are the most exciting current research opportunities in chemistry? What are young and promising Italian researchers in Dublin working at? These are the topics that Thorfinnur Gunlaugsson, Bruno D'Agostino and Emanuele Cappello of the TG Supramolecular and Medicinal Chemistry Research Group (School of Chemistry - Trinity College Dublin) will be debating to mark the Italian Research in the World Day.Promoted by the Ministry of Education, University and Research in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) and the Ministry of Health, the Italian Research Day in the World is designed to promote every year on 15 April , i.e. Leonardo da Vinci's birth date, the relevance of Italian scientific and technological research which is conducted in Italy and across the world. Italian research today ranks eight in the world in terms of scientific publications (Scimago), and Italian researchers are considered to be a very valuable asset. There are currently over 246,000 people working in the R & D sector in Italy. Science "overcomes cultural and language barriers, effectively supports political and diplomatic actions and at times it can lead the way. Italy is proud of its researchers whose creativity and competence are acknowledged in Italy and abroad. They are the ambassadors of our culture and our determination to support knowledge and innovation and to combine civic values, quality of life, beauty and modernity - our Italian way of life."
