Day 2 (26 March 2024): Welcome to the EPS Scientific Colloquium!

A particularity of the EPS Forum is to offer, within the same event, the possibility of not only promoting our young researchers to our industrial partners, but also of presenting the latest achievements in physics by the most renowned experts in selected disciplines. These are the same as those discussed over Day 1, but addressed from a more fundamental point of view on Day 2.

We shall have the pleasure to welcome the following prestigious Laureates:
Klaus von Klitzing: Laureate of the 1985 Nobel Prize in Physics
Stefan Hell
: Laureate of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Anne L’Huillier
: Laureate of the 2022 Wolf Prize in Physics
Nicola Spaldin
: Member of the ERC Scientific Council. Laureate of the 2017 L'Oréal-UNESCO Awards for Women in Science
