Simons Foundation for GGI


The Simons Foundation approved the funding for a Simons Fellowship program at the Galileo Galilei Institute (GGI) for Theoretical Physics for a five-year period beginning July 1, 2015.

These funds allow to support extended visits of eminent scientists at the GGI and increase the participation of PhD students, Post-Docs and young researchers in the training weeks and the GGI schools.

Every year the GGI can support the visit of about three Simons Visiting Scientists attending a large part of the GGI programs, with the role to enrich and stimulate the scientific dynamics of the program itself. Candidates for Simons GGI visiting scientists are proposed by the organizers of each workshop.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the stop of the in-person activities, we asked and obtained an extension of the grant up to June 30th, 2020.
