Meetings of VILIAS fellows, young researchers and guests invited by VILIAS members take three alternative forms. First, we meet monthly for public lectures, informal talks on (finalized, ongoing or foreseen) research projects that could be of interest for people coming from different research disciplines. Second, we hold regular night talks, discussions on certain research topics that could be attractive for younger people and would support their decisions in choosing a career in science. Last but not least, we organize meeting points - debates on ongoing issues of social life with a view of generating scientifically sound opinions and proposals addressed to relevant decision makers.
