DONATIONS FOR THE REVIVAL OF PHYSICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF L'AQUILA
The earthquake of April 6th 2009 has endangered the possibility to mantain at the University of L'Aquila the cultural function that in over 40 years has allowed the valid education of local Physicists. The situation is very critical not only for the damage produced by the seism to the seat itself of the university and its facilities but also for the difficulties of young people coming to the university to continue their studies in severe uneasiness conditions (without hostels, lecture halls, laboratories, transport).
Only thanks to an effective and focused intervention of our Physicists' Community the redevelopment in L'Aquila of the life of the Physics Department and of the Physics Graduation Course will be possible. A concrete encouragement to the students is needed in order to let them newly believe in a future of professional training in the Department which has had, besides, a key role to enhance synergy with the nearby Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) of INFN.
Answering the call of L'Aquila Physicists and of many other eminent Colleagues, the Italian Physical Society has willingly assumed a role of 'centre of reference' to convey aid to the Physics Department and Physics Graduation Course of the University of L'Aquila so as to promote a great effort of encouragement and solidarity.
Donations - FROM INDIVIDUALS, UNIVERSITIES, RESEARCH CENTRES AND INSTITUTIONS, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL - can be made via bank transfer to the following account of the Italian Banca Nazionale del Lavoro:
SOCIETÀ ITALIANA DI FISICA - 'PER LA FISICA ALL'AQUILA'
The funds collected will have as immediate target - in such a way as to avoid the dispersion of students with a risk of extinction of the Physics school of L'Aquila AWARDS OR SCHOLARSHIPS FOR BACHELOR AND MASTER DEGREE STUDENTS AND FOR PHD STUDENTS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF L'AQUILA.
The Physics Department of the University of L'Aquila wishes to thank all those who in Italy and all around the world have repeatedly expressed their sorrow and solidarity after the earthquake, moreover their noble intention to contribute with a financial help to the revival of Physics in L'Aquila.
