University of Genoa

Contact: Gemma Testera

The University of Genoa is one of the most valuable cultural and scientific heritage of the Mediterranean and the Italian north-western area. Deeply interconnected with the city of Genoa and its economic framework, it plays a leading role in the fields of research, innovation and technology transfer in an increasingly competitive environment at national and international level. The University of Genoa takes part in national and international programmes, it selects funding channels and promotes many relations with local and regional authorities and companies.

The University of Genoa boasts a long tradition in antimatter physics, being part of the group - lead by INFN-  who first synthetized antihydrogen atoms at Cern back in 1996 and the first cold antihydrogen atom in a dedicated facility later in 2002 (ATHENA experiment).
