Frascati, April 1st – 5th  2019

Challenges in Modern Physics and Quantum Technologies


INSPYRE – INternational School on modern PhYsics and Research, “Challenges in Modern Physics and Quantum Technologies”, is dedicated to the hottest topics, real challenges for a new generation of scientists, of Modern Physics and to the powerful Quantum Technologies envisaging a quantum supremacy technological era. We’ll rock you, using accelerators and gravitational waves observatories, in a fantastic journey from quarks to neutron stars and black holes, to explore the Universe. INSYRE 2019 will host a two-days dedicated event organized in the framework of the European COST Action CA15220 – Quantum Technologies in Space, where recent progress in the quantum realm and main challenges for Quantum Technologies on Earth and in Space will be introduced.

You, the young INSPYRED ones, participants to the 2019 Edition, will be involved in a series of hands-on experiments of modern physics realized for and with you by us, the researchers. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the main experiments and accelerating facilities at LNF.

The School is open to about 80 students in their last two years of high school coming from many countries. 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 offered at the canteen by LNF).

We are looking forward to INSPYRE you, and get INSPYRED by you!





In order to participate, high-schools should apply filling this FORM.
Application deadline is December 15th . There are still some seats available for foreign schools.
Because of the high number of applications, only 2 students will be accepted per school and selection will work on a first come first served basis.
Since we have reached the maximum number of participants, any other application submitted from November 30th will be set on a waiting list

The LNF Communication and Scientific Education Office will contact the schools selected in order to define the details for their participation.

We are looking forward to INSPYRE you with new Challenges in Modern Physics and Quantum Technologies!
