Science plays a crucial role in modern society. The development of large, international and collaborative organisations and research facilities at the forefront of technology brings many broader societal benefits. Scientists foster knowledge and produce results that have often immediate impact on the life of people. In this context, astronomy plays a privileged role. While having an extraordinary impact on the imagination of many people, astronomy enables researchers to use front-end technology to explore the Universe and its beauty. Driven by a genuine passion for their work, the community of professional astronomers is permeated by a round-the-clock exchange of technical expertise, basic knowledge and scientific discoveries that goes beyond any cultural barrier.

In this conference we offer a virtual platform to discuss topics of philosophical and sociological relevance to the wider community.
