As Vice Chair of ItalianRSA, Giuseppe Resta intends to open the association to Italian post-doc and early-stage researchers as they lack proper representation at a national and international level. In collaboration with the chair and the rest of the members, he proposes to collect data on the main problems that make academic career advancement challenging right after doctoral studies. Another focal point is the communication strategy that can allow ItalianRSA to grow and be recognized by the scientific community. Finally, it is important to establish intersectoral collaboration with a view to offering associated members possibilities to ground their research in society with funding and partnerships.
