Archamps, 13th July 2015
JUAS Director, Louis Rinolfi, attended the international workshop on particle accelerators organized by the Società Italiana di Fisica at Varenna from 9th to 11th July.
The workshop, entitled “Future Research Infrastructures: Challenges and opportunities”, was led by Sergio Bertolucci (CERN) and Luigi Palumbo (University of Rome la Sapienza) and attended by around 70 international specialists, more than 30 of whom presented ongoing and future projects from the world of particle accelerators.
Many participants stressed the need to maintain and develop specialized education in the field of particle accelerators, thereby confirming the importance of JUAS in training future generations of particle accelerator physicists.
The workshop was the ideal occasion for Louis Rinolfi to meet up and exchange with JUAS Advisory Board members and lecturers as well as several former JUAS students.
