The SNS promotes and organises important occasions for exchange within the scientific community, mainly directed at a specialist audience but also open to the public. Meetings, workshops and study days are fundamental to research activity, contributing to the circulation of ideas and to the sharing of knowledge. Being able to attend these initiatives is an integral part of the educational experience of the students of the SNS, as of students of other universities.

The meetings and study days of the Faculties, laboratories and research groups are an opportunity to make known the results of the studies conducted at the SNS. In-depth studies and new interpretations of the most advanced themes of research are debated in a critical spirit with scholars from the national and international academic scene.

The workshops, more informal occasions orientated towards a specific theme, feature less formal and structured discussions involving the active participation of the public.

The " Colloqui della Classe di Scienze” (the Conversations of the Faculty of Sciences) are a cycle of annual seminars, at monthly intervals, held by international scholars and dedicated to themes of general interest for Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.  Although the meetings are an opportunity for discussion for students, visiting professors, researchers and lecturers of the faculty, the subjects tackled and the language in which they are communicated make them accessible to a non-academic audience.
