SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies, was founded in 1978 and is a scientific center of excellence within the national and international academic scene. Located in Italy, in the city of Trieste, it features about 65 professors, approximately a 100 post-docs and 250 PhD students. Situated on the scenic Karst upland, the School is surrounded by a 25 acre park, and offers a stunning view of the Gulf of Trieste.

The three main research areas of SISSA are Physics, Neuroscience and Mathematics.

SISSA Colloquium | Novel Directions in the Search for New Physics

Asimina Arvanitaki of the Perimeter Institute, Canada, will show how black holes or precision experiments may provide us with evidence on the presence of new physics.

SISSA Colloquia are part of the celebration of the School's 40th Anniversary. They are intended as a moment of interdisciplinary exchange and a way to reaffirm the sense of belonging to our community.

European Researchers' Night

A rich programme of acitivities for people of all ages: hands-on experiments, meetings, exhibitions, science games and much more in Piazza Unità and around the city centre.
