Physicists describe Nature. They are the one who can mediate us, with care and attention, general features, hypotheses and theories that help us to describe physical phenomena drifting from a more abstract and fundamental level to the tacit, complicate, the real existence of things. However, they face the challenge when is time to explain how elementary particles interact with the quantum world. Together, efforts in knowledge transfer and education can be enhanced, triggering the role of fundamental research as a motor for new technologies and relevance for society.
Given the increasing role of new challenges that people must face today in our societies, there is an increasing need that future citizens will be not only technologically literate but also truly aware of their own environmental problems and challenges that they’ll face in their upcoming future. I know that this statement may sound weirdContinue reading “Three challenges for education leaders”
Last week I was lucky to attend to the annual international conference held at the Enrico ‘Fermi Center’ in Rome. The Institute of Physics has proved to be a symbol and an extraordinary place for Italian research, for scientific promotion and knowledge in general. A creative environment for the ability to combine individual skills andContinue reading “Highlights from the International Workshop organized in Centro Fermi of Rome, 18-19 May 2017.”
