“The Scientific Committee will be crucial for the activities that Med-Or Foundation will have to conduct in the forthcoming months – said Marco Minniti. – This first meeting has been a great opportunity to share and discuss the objectives that our Foundation, with the contribution of the members of the Scientific Committee, will pursue, in terms of cultural activities, projects, international cooperation in the academic and higher education fields. From the positive discussion of today, many interesting ideas emerged, and they will be very functional to strengthen our work and our future initiatives.
