“Hoza 69″ in Warsaw designated EPS Historic Site

By Luisa Cifarelli. Published on 29 January 2013 in:
Awards, January 2013, , ,

The EPS Historic Sites programme of the European Physical Society [EPS] commemorates places in Europe important for the development and the history of physics. Laboratories, buildings, institutions, universities, towns, etc. associated with an event, discovery, research or body of work, by one or more individuals, that made considerable contributions to physics at the national or European/international level, can be considered for the Historic Site distinction from the EPS.

The “Hoza 69″ building in Warsaw, Poland, was the first EPS Historic Site declared by the EPS Selection Committee…

Editorial – The European Physical Society is 45 years old

By Luisa Cifarelli. Published on 29 January 2013 in:
2013, Editorial, January 2013, , , ,

2013 marks the 45th anniversary of the European Physical Society [EPS], sealing the maturity of our Society.

The EPS was founded in 1968 as “a demonstration of the determination of scientists to collaborate as closely as possible in order to further strengthen the European Cultural unity”. Since then the EPS has grown, both in dimensions and objectives.

In the last two years, following the guidelines of its strategy plan, the EPS has been developing a number of…

LHC stops … to regenerate more powerful!

By Luisa Cifarelli, Rosario Nania. Published on 29 January 2013 in:
January 2013, News, ,

2012 was quite a year for the CERN Large Hadron Collider [LHC]! A year of fundamental achievements both in physics and technology, successfully marking the end of the first 3 years period of data taking of LHC. A two years technical stop is now foreseen to allow improvements that will not only permit the machine to reach its full design energy (7 TeV per beam) and increased luminosity, but also allow the experiments to reach their utmost performance.

So far the LHC has been making continuous progress, exceeding the more optimistic luminosity goals and beam…

Physics in primary schools

By Roberta Caruso. Published on 29 January 2013 in:
January 2013, News, ,

Teaching physics in an interactive way, showing concretely what we are talking about, is one of the most important goals of outreach projects promoted by European Physical Society [EPS] Young Minds. With the help of Sara Lombardi, a high school physics teacher who has been involved in outreach projects in primary schools for many years, the Naples YM Section decided to focus on the challenge of teaching physics in primary schools.

They worked with the Italian national project “Lauree Scientifiche per la Fisica”, in particular with Giovanni Chiefari…
