SISSA Excellence Grants: a chance for young scientists

SISSA actively promotes and supports talented young researchers and also this year this can be done by SISSA Excellence Grants, grants for post-doctoral research projects awarded to scientists at the beginning of their career, showing talent, initiative and independence.
