language English
duration 1 week
credits 3 EC
fee EUR 400

The school is co-organized by the INFN-Sezione di Pisa and the Department of Physics of the University of Pisa. It is financially supported by INFN (Italy) and IRFU (France).

The activity will consist of twelve lectures. Each lecture willcover a topic contained in a standard Nuclear Physics textbook extended to show how our understanding has deeply changed due to the experience accumulated in the last decades. In particular we shall concentrate on aspects related to recent progress in Nuclear Physics applications in which the understanding of basic Nuclear Physics and its experimental manifestation play a key role.

In order to give the activity a fully international character and because we aim at favouring the participation of really young students, the first half day we will propose some introductory lectures given in separated sessions in different

languages. Furthermore every afternoon there will be tutorials in the different languages. Half a day will be dedicated to a visit to the INFN-LABEC laboratory in Florence.
