VATICAN CITY, JUN 20, 2006 (VIS) - The Fourth European Symposium of University Professors will be held in Rome from June 22 to 25 on the theme: "The Firm and the Building of a New Humanism." The event has been promoted by the Office for Pastoral Care in Universities of the Vicariate of Rome, and organized by the Sacred Heart Catholic University.

  The inaugural ceremony will be held in the Town Hall of Rome where, following a presentation of the symposium by Cesare Mirabelli, president of the committee of university professors, the work of the meeting will be introduced by Cardinal Camillo Ruini, vicar general for the diocese of Rome and president of the Italian Episcopal Conference, who will speak on the subject of "the firm and Christian humanism."

  This will be followed by the keynote speech, to be delivered by David Teece from the University of California, Berkeley, on the "economic and social evolution of the relationship firm-man", with additional contributions from Alberto Cova of the Sacred Heart Catholic University on the "historic evolution of the relationship firm-man," and from Peter Koslowski of the Free University of Amsterdam on the "cultural evolution of the relationship firm-man."

  From Friday June 23 to Sunday June 25, the international congress will continue its work in the convention center of Rome's Sacred Heart Catholic University. More than 250 university professors are due to participate, from 25 countries in Europe and elsewhere, including: Albania, Belgium, Canada, Colombia, Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Lithuania and Moldavia. Two working groups will be formed to consider the theme of "the firm in Europe today, problems and prospects," in which businessmen and academics will come together to share their views.
