In September 2020 Trieste will host the EuroScience Open Forum – ESOF, the largest interdisciplinary science meeting in Europe, an extraordinary event dedicated to scientific research and innovation, offering a unique framework for interaction and debate for scientists, innovators, policy makers, entrepreneurs and the general public.

UIA has decided to take this opportunity and bring together scientists and legal experts to discuss and debate key areas of common interest.

Scientific progress risks being hampered by laws conceived in less scientifically advanced times. The world is changing at an incredibly fast rate and the legal community is struggling to evolve at the same speed. Emerging technologies and scientific discoveries are raising novel legal issues and rapidly transforming both the substance and practice of law in almost every area.

From artificial intelligence to gene editing, from autonomous systems to telemedicine, this virtual seminar composed with 4 panels, included by ESOF among its official satellite events, will address the ethical, legal, regulatory, and policy issues that surround the emergence of new technologies and scientific advances.
