Scuola di Dottorato 2018


General Info

The PhD School “Italo Gorini 2018” is the doctoral School promoted by the Italian “Electrical and Electronic Measurement” (GMEE) and “Mechanical and Thermal Measurement” (GMMT) associations.

The School activities deal with a wide variety of issues related to the measurement. The School is aimed both at PhD students, as well as young people from research and industry fields.



The main emphasis of the Ph.D. School is enriching the training in the field of instrumentation and measurement of doctoral students and young researchers through presentations given by lecturers well quoted among the Italian and international scientific community; promote and consolidate human relations and scientific cooperation among the participants.


The doctoral School “Italo Gorini” is organized in three-year cycles.

The VII Cycle for the years 2018-2020 includes the following venues: Geneva-CERN (2018), Reggio Calabria (2019), Naples-Amalfi coast (2020).

The PhD School “Italo Gorini 2018” aims to enrich the training in the field of Instrumentation and Measurement and to strengthen human relations and scientific cooperation among doctoral students and young researchers.

The school addresses both methodological issues, in the field of science and technology related to the measures and instrumentation, and advanced problems of practical interest.

The School cycle will follow the consolidated rotation cycle of the 6 research lines:

·         1st year (2018) Geneva-CERN: Measurement for quality and innovation management (RA3-Cristaldi), Measuring systems and instrumentation (RA5-Tellini);

·         2nd year (2019) Reggio Calabria: Measurements for characterization of components and systems (RA4-Arpaia),  Measurement signals and data (RA2-Narduzzi)

·         3rd year (2020) Naples-Amalfi Coast: Sensors and transducers for measurement (RA6-Andò), Fundamentals of measurement and metrology (RA1-Giaquinto)

The School activity will deal with a wide variety of issues related to the measurement, by taking inspiration from practical particle accelerators technologies, but generalized to a wider audience, in an international context.

The School will be aimed both at PhD students, as well as young people from research and industry fields.

The School will address both methodological issues, in the field of science and technology related to the measures and instrumentation, and advanced problems of practical interest.

Special attention will be paid to the impact of measures on scientific and engineering context, strongly influenced by the evolution of technology in various sectors.

From one side the benefits that these technologies can offer to the development of innovative measurement systems is addressed, from the other the new open issues and the innovations introduced by the science of measurement are investigated.

The School will have a weekly duration and will be developed through lectures, seminars, conferences, visits to CERN laboratories and experiments, as well as debates.

Who should attend the PhD School

The school is aimed at Ph.D. students and young researchers in any of the Engineering or scientific disciplines.

Training credits

 The activities can be recognized and quantified in terms of credits.

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
