The prestigious prize «Enrico Fermi» has been awarded starting from 2001, to commemorate the great scientist on the occasion of the centenary of his birth. The prize is yearly awarded to one or more Members of the Society who particularly honoured physics with their discoveries. A commission made of experts appointed by SIF, CNR, INAF, INFN, Centro Fermi (Museo Storico della Fisica e Centro Studi e Ricerche «Enrico Fermi») and INGV selects the winner(s) among a list of candidates and sends the proposal to the Council of SIF for final approval.
The Italian Physical Society awards for the year 2013 a prize of EUR 30.000,00 (thirty thousand euros).
The prize will be conferred during the Opening Ceremony of the XCIX National Congress of the Italian Physical Society that will be held in Trieste on September 23rd, 2013.
For the 2013 prize the announcement and the form for motivated nominations are downloadable from SIF website.
Deadline for application: June, 15th 2013.
