Wed, Oct 2 2019 - Two foreigners and five Italians. Following successful careers in prestigious research institutes, many of them will be working with an Italian institute for the first time.
As the Milan EXPO came to an end in 2015, the Italian government and local institutions started a discussion concerning the future use of the area. The aim was to have a project that would carry on the legacy of the Expo, with a focus on sustainability, health, environment, solidarity and opportunities for young people. The Italian government, with the support of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), renowned centre of scientific and technological excellence, decided for the creation of a multidisciplinary research infrastructure, that would combine different research areas to tackle issues relating to health, aging and well-being.
