After the successful third edition dedicated to Nanotechnologies, the Erice International School has changed its directors: “I want to thank Barbara Gallavotti and the staff that helped launch the School in 2009 and enrich it during its first three editions, and I want to welcome Umberto Dosselli and Fabio Turone who will be the new Course Directors from now on” announced the Director of the School Professor Enzo Iarocci.
Umberto Dosselli, who is currently the director of the Frascati National Laboratory of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics, will be the Scientific Director, while science journalist Fabio Turone, president of Science Writers in Italy and associate member of the board of the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations will be in charge of the journalism programme.
The theme of the 2013 edition – that will be held from May 25 to 29 in the extraordinary venue on top of Mount Erice dominating Trapani – is brain imaging and specifically Magnetic Resonance.
The Centro Fermi and the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture will offer, like in the previous editions, some 30+ fellowships covering tuition, travel and accomodation for students based in Europe, in part reserved to fellows who took part in previous editions (the details and the instructions for applying will be published soon).
Here are some of the results of the online survey
among the participants of the 2012 edition of the School on “Nanotechnology”.
