AMVA4NewPhysics: Fully-Armed and Operational!

by Giles Strong

Just in time for our 4th all-network workshop, the AMVA4NewPhysics ITN reached full capacity with the addition of the two final ESRs, Seng (Munich) and Ioanna (Athens). The aforementioned workshop was hosted by the University of Oviedo, itself a recent addition to network, and organised by our outreach officer, Pietro, who did Continue reading “AMVA4NewPhysics: Fully-Armed and Operational!”

Art & Science 4: Canvas Installation

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Chiara Cattelan and Lorenzo Banchieri, two students of Liceo Marco Foscarini in Venice, are the authors of the work presented in this post, which along with the others presented in the former posts partecipates in the artistic contest for the EPS 2017 conference, organized by the EU project “CREATIONS” and sponsored by our network.

The two young artists have conceived an installation made up by two canvases set up back to back, representing a particle collision at the LHC from two different viewing angles – the one at the scale of the detector, which is Continue reading “Art & Science 4: Canvas Installation”

Art & Science 3: The Universe Between My Fingers

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Today Ivan Bianchi, professor of Contemporary art at the University of Padova, visited along with the AMVA4NewPhysics network coordinator the Liceo “Marco Foscarini” in Venice, to assess the status of the projects produced by the students for the “Arte & Scienza” contest.

The project has been described previously. In a nutshell, it foresees artistic work by high-school students, inspured by high-energy Continue reading “Art & Science 3: The Universe Between My Fingers”

Art & Science: 2 – Simmetrie

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

This is the second installment of a series of posts that will publish the results of artistic work by high-school students of three schools in Venice, who participate in a contest and exposition connected to the initiative “Art and Science across Italy“, an initiative of the network CREATIONS, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the EU.

The AMVA4NewPhysics network is sponsoring and directing the artistic production in Venice, which has taken place at Liceo Stefanini, Liceo Foscarini, Continue reading “Art & Science: 2 – Simmetrie”

Workshop in Oviedo

by Tommaso Dorigo

For the first time, all the 10 Early-Stage Researchers hired by our ITN network got together, to attend the fourth all-network workshop. This was organized by the Outreach Officer Pietro Vischia in the University of Oviedo. Along with the network workshop, a Roostats tutorial is taking place as we speak in the Facultad de Ciencias.

It was very nice to see these young women (4) and men (6) showcasing their recent results on a number of attractive and cutting-edge topics Continue reading “Workshop in Oviedo”

Practical Tools of the Improvised Speaker

by Tommaso Dorigo

Yesterday I visited the Liceo “Benedetti” of Venice, where 40 students are preparing their artwork for a project of communicating science with art that will culminate in an exhibit at the Palazzo del Casinò of the Lido of Venice, during the Continue reading “Practical Tools of the Improvised Speaker”

Art and Science: Outreach in Venice

by Tommaso Dorigo

In a few days, students from five high schools in Venice will be lectured on particle physics, the Higgs boson, the giant detectors of today’s colliders, and will be treated with pictures and graphs aimed at stimulating their artistic vein.

This initiative, which is part of the “CREATIONS” EU project, is carried out by personnel of the AMVA4NewPhysics network – another EU project, the one I am coordinating since 2015. The idea is that students of the third and fourth year of high school spend the months of February through May creating artwork inspired by particle physics. The best of these works will be exposed during EPS 2017, the international conference that takes place this July in the Lido of Venice.

AMVA4NewPhysics: Where We Are

by Tommaso Dorigo

The AMVA4NewPhysics network has reached month 17, and its third solar year in existence. It is time, I think, to make a short summary of what has been going on until now, before we concentrate our attention on what lies ahead.

Overall, if we look at the plan as its authors designed it in the fall of 2014, we see an impressive level of agreement. This is by no means a trivial statement! Writing a successful ITN project involves making a number Continue reading “AMVA4NewPhysics: Where We Are”
