The 2019 edition of the Genoa Science Festival

The 2019 edition of the Genoa Science Festival successfully concluded with 210.000 registered visits and over 280 scheduled events, which took place across different locations in the city of Genova.

Cnr, which is the main partner of this event, participated with different events including exhibitions, conferences, laboratories and performances.


La realtà oltre lo specchio: divertirsi con le simmetrie

“It is only slightly overstating the case to say that physics is the study of symmetry.”

Philip Anderson (1972) - Nobel Laureate in Physics. He gave important contributions in the symmetry breaking mechanism

“Beauty is bound up with Symmetry”

H. Weyl (1885 - 1955) - Nobel Laureate in Physics. He gave important contributions to the “discovery and application of fundamental symmetry principles”

Symmetry is a very difficult topic whose deep understanding has required the development of a complex mathematical language called Group theory. Complex physical theories are based on symmetry arguments and symmetry principles. Physical properties of materials are often based on symmetry breaking mechanisms. Despite this complexity, the symmetry of an object can be easily and intuitively understood by childreen as well…



We are very excited to announce and host an International Workshop on the Iron-based Superconductors which will be held on February 12th – 14th, 2020 in Santa Margherita (GE), in the beautiful Riviera Ligure, close to Portofino, Cinque Terre and Genova.


SuperFOx 2020

The 5th edition of SuperFOx, Conference on Superconductivity and Functional Oxides, will be held in Santa Margherita, from February 10 to February 12, 2020.



Conventional and High-Energy Spectroscopies for Inorganic, Organic and Biomolecular Surfaces and Interfaces

È aperta la registrazione alla seconda edizione della Scuola CHESS2019; la Scuola, dedicata a dottorandi e giovani ricercatori, si terrà dal 2 al 6 Dicembre a Firenze e vuole caratterizzarsi come evento multidisciplinare nell’ambito della Fisica, Chimica e Scienza dei Materiali.
Al momento sono disponibili 12 borse come potete vedere nel link.


International School on Crystallographic Groups and Their Representations & Workshop on Topological Insulators

The International School on Crystallographic Groups & Their Representations and the subsequent Workshop on Topological Insulators were held at the International Center for Quantum and Molecular Structure (ICQMS), Shanghai University (SHU), Shanghai, China in July 1-7, 2019.


2nd Workshop on Microactuators

The second Workshop on Microactuators will be held in Osaka (Japan) on 4th October 2019. Scope of this international workshop is to promote discussions in the fields of microactuators, MEMS/NEMS, flexible devices and related materials.
