The science talent show is back in Trieste for the seventh time. Young scientists have 3 minutes to tell the object of their study, or a scientific topic they are interested in. No slideshows, graphs, videos are allowed: only a fistful of words and communication skills are required to present the charm of scientific research to the public, in an amusing and clear way.
FameLab Trieste will take place on 27 February 2019 from 9 am at Teatro Miela.
On the occasion of its 40th Anniversary, the School is pleased to announce the foundation of the SISSA Alumni Society. It is open to all former SISSA students who have completed a PhD course, obtained a MPhil degree, or attended a Master’s degree...
