DEI PROGETTI DEL CENTRO FERMI
Roma, 19 – 20 aprile 2012
LUISA CIFARELLI — Centro Fermi, Rome (IT)
European Physical Society
University & INFN, Bologna (IT) — CERN, Geneva (CH)
CENTRO FERMI is a research institution devoted to multidisciplinary studies.
It aims to integrate the knowledge generated in different fields, and to promote discussion among top scientists with different areas of expertise, in order to create what Enrico Fermi would have liked to realise in Italy:
a centre dedicated to frontier research in physics and to its wide applications for the benefit of humankind.
The activities of CENTRO FERMI characterize its uniqueness:
1. Extreme Energy Events - Science inSchools;
2. Quark-Gluon Coloured World - ALICE and beyond;
3. Non Invasive Technologies for Neuroscience - Magnetic Resonance;
4.1 Concentration Photovoltaic System at High Efficiency for Production of Electricity;
4.2 Intrinsically Safe Reactors;
5. Environment and Cultural Heritage, including:
5.1 Scientific-TechnologicalFoundations of Meteorology and Climate;
5.2 Innovative Diagnostic Tools for Arts and Cultural Heritage.
A telescope consists of three MRPCs, that can be placed at varying distances between them, to allow students and teachers to experiment with various configurations.
MRPCs are also used in ALICE@LHC
At present, 33 High Schools are involved.
They are mostly distributed in clusters in the whole Italian territory.
2 Telescopes are at CERN, 2 at INFN Bologna and Catania
11 new High Schools involved in the Project;
CENTRO FERMI is part of the ALICE experiment at LHC and its contribution is crucial in terms of:
New timing/synchronization challenges for detectors & accelerators for a future experiment at LHC are also envisaged in the Project.
Many sessions of functional imaging were performed, and the considerable amount of data has been analyzed with the equipment provided by CENTRO FERMI.
In collaboration with
Applications were made for the “Rewarding financing of specific programmes and projects – 2011”, according to art. 4, paragraph 2, of Legislative Decree no. 213/2009.
These Projects are extensions of existing CENTRO FERMI Projects.
The following Projects were developed in the last few years at Centro Fermi.
These are now considered as completed:
The Monumental Complex of Via Panisperna, whose restoration workisunderway, will be made available in 2014.
This includes the recovery of various elements in the proper historical context, such as the celbratedgoldfishFountain, the Great Hall, the Library.
At present, the Permanent Staff (5 units)consists of:
But Centro Fermi involves altogether about 80-100 physicists
plus hundreds of students & teachers acting in the EEE Project

New funding sources are presently being explored:
CENTRO FERMI is currently part of the evaluation VQR 2004-2011 (ValutazioneQualitàdellaRicerca) carried on by ANVUR (AgenziaNazionale di Valutazione del sistemaUniversitario e dellaRicerca).
CENTRO FERMI should submit a self-assessment report on Scientific Activities by the end of May 2012by its CIV (ComitatoInterno di Valutazione).
