The Giannino Bassetti Foundation for Responsibility in Innovation is offering two travel grants for junior participants presenting papers on the theme of “Responsibility in Science Communication".
The Foundation promotes research and debate on the concepts of innovation, responsibility and power especially through the Foundation’s web-site. The Giannino Bassetti Foundation (a non-profit organisation) is the outcome of a desire on the part of the Bassetti family heirs to honour the memory of Giovanni Bassetti, an entrepreneur of particular capabilities and merits. His commitment was characterized, above all, by his awareness of the moral context of entrepreneurial choices.
The aim of the Foundation is to promote cultural and political activity that will foster responsible innovation, concurring to review and construct a sense of social, civil and political responsibility amongst people of culture, science and power so that, together, we can learn to live more responsibly.
The grants are available for participants under 30 years of age and include the covering of conference fees plus 600 euros to be used for travel and accommodation.
To apply, please send a full CV and a statement of interest (max one page) plus a copy of your paper proposal to: Fondazione G. Bassetti (fond.gbassettiatmclinkdotit] by October 14, 2011
