The National Laboratory of Frascati (LNF) of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN), Frascati (Rome) Italy, are organizing the 6th Edition of the INternational School on modern PhYsics and REsearch, under the theme: The Space Frontier.

The School, to be held in the period of February 13-17, 2017, is open to about 70 students in their last year(s) of high school coming from all over Europe.
INSPYRE involves lectures on Modern Physics and its applications in Society, with a special focus on “the space frontier”, and laboratory activities. The participants will also have the opportunity to visit the main experiments and accelerating facilities at LNF. English is the official language of the school.

The activity is free of charge; however, participants should provide for travel, accommodation and dinner expenses (lunch is organized at the LNF canteen).
