Planet science is a platform aimed at helping to create and keep friendships, initiate new projects and collaborations among South-Tyrolean researchers and teachers living abroad. And to strengthen their exchange with colleagues in South-Tyrol, but also to inform about job opportunities at the various universities and at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.

The objective is also to encourage a debate on science policy in order to strengthen the visibility of South-Tyrol as attractive science location.

An additional added value could be created by organizing a lecture series at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano with South-Tyrolean researchers and teachers living abroad giving a specific talk or lecture.
