Even if you find a problem, you will find a solution as well”. This is how today, at the Opening Ceremony of the Rome International Careers Festival, Eva Ratti defined the role of a researcher. She focuses her attention on PhD, a payed training under a supervisor.

After having graduated from Astrophysics in Italy, Eva Ratti went to the Netherlands and was granted a PhD. Then, coming back to Italy, she became aware of the lack of opportunities for “Philosophiae doctors” who choose to stick with science.

As statistics show, only 5% of those who take a PhD continue with research, while the other 95% have to find another job. That’s why people think that there is no future for research in Italy and most of the Italian researchers leave their country to go abroad.

“Staying abroad helps you open your mind to other cultures, share your opinions, compare ideas and work on yourself. It makes you become a citizen of the world. On the other side, it is difficult to stay away from home, having to deal with another language and a different culture.” Eva said. In order to solve this problem, Eva Ratti decided to create a startup, with the aim of fueling the innovation power of companies and organizations by connecting them with those coming from a scientific research experience who are seeking career opportunities in the corporate world. Although society and science are considered two separate worlds, Eva underlines the fact that these realities are interacting and that “the methods of science affect our everyday life and thinking heavily”. An example to clarify is when you take medicines in a certain way, you trust the pharmacist who sold it to you . The pharmacist trusts the producers of the medicine and these people trust the research.

Eva Ratti stresses the concept that knowing science helps you in many ways since its very nature makes you grow a critical and thoughtful mentality. Ultimately, thanks to these knowledges you’ll less naif and more aware of the world around you. In this sense, for those who choose to get a PhD with true motivation and awareness, applying one's knowledge to everyday life could be an added value, given the fact that researchers are best trained to face the challenges of innovation.
