“The challenges of society, healthcare and industry,” said Fondazione Bruno Kessler President Ferruccio Resta, “are intertwined with the changes affecting the life of individuals and their relationship with technology. Fondazione Bruno Kessler – thanks to the quality of its research in the fields of microsystems, sensors, artificial intelligence, and the humanities and social sciences – feels deeply the responsibility to respond to these complex transitions. In this context, we feel it is essential to be able to exchange views with an Advisory Committee that can best support our future strategic choices, counting on profiles that – in addition to fulfilling the statutory duties provided for – can become ambassadors of FBK’s values and potential.”
