Scientific research is at the heart of the country’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR). The synergy with the big Horizon Europe projects, interdisciplinarity, and the recruitment and training of new researchers are the strategic drivers of a plan that promises innovative solutions to improve the quality of life, protect natural resources, and promote social cohesion. The President of the National Research Council and two rectors discuss this challenge and the new opportunities. What are the available tools? What are the expectations? How can relevant objectives be achieved within the timeframe set by the Recovery and Resilience Plan? How can technology transfer be promoted to transform research into innovation and value for society?
