HIGH-TECH FOR PEACE FORUM
27/28.05.16

The Forum's objective is to discuss on the potential of advanced technologies and scientific innovation as instruments of dialogue, coexistence, generation of common interests and, therefore, peace.
The presence of international personalities of the first order in different fields has ensured the high-quality level of the Forum.

The forum has been held at the Palazzo dei Congressi and has developed over two days around four themes that are among the pillars of modern society: medicine, energy, water and communications. The program has been particularly interesting thanks to a series of project presentations, discoveries and innovations that have positively influenced the lives of many people around the World, who will also benefit in the future.
