RIFORMARE LE ISTITUZIONI DELL’UNIONE IN VISTA DELL’ALLARGAMENTO • Seminario di Fabio Spitaleri e Stefano Amadeo – Martedì, 21 maggio 2024

La stabilizzazione del continente europeo impone di completare il processo di allargamento dell’Unione. Tutti i Paesi dei Balcani Occidentali hanno da tempo chiesto di aderire all’Unione europea. Di recente, tre nuovi Stati (Ucraina, Georgia e Moldova) si sono aggiunti alla lista dei candidati. Tuttavia, soltanto una significativa revisione dei trattati consentirà di aprire le porte a questi nuovi Paesi. Le istituzioni dell’UE e, soprattutto, le procedure decisionali, che queste seguono in settori cruciali, devono essere riformate per consentire all’Unione europea di affrontare le sfide poste dall’attuale scenario internazionale.

LE PIANTE COME BIOREATTORI: COME ‘COLTIVARE’ MOLECOLE DI INTERESSE FARMACEUTICO-INDUSTRIALE • Seminar by Andrea Pompa – Tuesday, 14th May 2024

Plants are usually catalogued in our minds as organisms linked to food, so-called “natural medicine” or voluptuaries aspects (wine, drugs, etc.). In recent years, many other possible uses of plant organisms have emerged linked to the most modern genetic engineering techniques and the study of the enzymatic kits present in plant cells.

This seminar highlights the potential contained in the encounter between biotechnological sciences and the plant world. From this union comes a new vision of techniques that lead to the development of the latest generation of drugs, including recombinant proteins, or to the enhancement of biological pathways already present in plant matrices to optimise the production of molecules of high commercial and therapeutic value.

THE PASSAGE FROM CLASSICAL TO QUANTUM PHYSICS • Short Course by Giorgio Pastore – Starting on Monday, 22nd April 2024

The so-called crisis of classical physics is often presented in textbooks and courses that are not specifically focused on the history of physics in an oversimplified form. This fact makes it challenging to understand which conceptual knots had to be overcome and how in the passage from classical to quantum physics. For example, the famous “ultraviolet catastrophe” of the blackbody theory, often stressed in textbooks, played no role in Planck’s revolutionary approach. The introduction of matrix mechanics by Heisenberg and Jordan in 1925 was also more a revolutionary evolution of the old quantum theory than a consequence of the Uncertainty Principle. Such a conceptual transition and the role of the Uncertainty Principle are also rarely described in a historically correct way.

This cycle of three seminars aims to present in a historically correct form the conceptual steps related to

  1. the elaboration of the Old Quantum Theory, stressing the main underlying ideas;
  2. the open problems and the conceptual approach that opened the way to the matrix representation of Quantum Mechanics;
  3. the alternative approach of the wave mechanics by Schrödinger up to the synthesis between Heisenberg and Schrödinger’s approaches and the birth of the modern formulation of Quantum Theory.

ON THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING CRITICAL • Seminar by Matteo Marsili – Wednesday, 17th April 2024

Being critical, i.e. able to process and distill relevant information, is crucial for living systems. Learning distinguishes living from inanimate matter. Quantifying this distinction may provide a “life meter” that, for example, can allow us to detect alien life forms in astrobiology. Living systems also respond in an anomalous manner to perturbations, as compared to inanimate matter, unless the latter is poised at a critical state (in the statistical physics sense). I argue that these two notions of criticality are only apparently different, because a system that learns is inherently critical, also in the statistical physics sense.

POWERING THE JUST TRANSITION • Lectio Magistralis by Daniel Kammen – Wednesday, 20th March 2024

The path to deeply decarbonized economies requires innovation and highly interdisciplinary work across diverse fields. The theory and practice of an urgently needed ‘climate-justice nexus‘ to protect our people and planet will be outlined by Daniel Kammen, one of the most recognized world experts. Examples, from the delivery of health care in under-resourced communities to aggressive cost-savings decarbonization, will be discussed as key leverage points for the Just Energy Transition.

BOLD MICE AND ANXIOUS SQUIRRELS • Seminar by Alessio Mortelliti – Monday, 11th March 2024

Within a species some individuals tend to be shier, some bolder and some more aggressive. This individuality in their behavior is known as ‘personality’ and is the result of natural selection, since it is partly written in an individuals’ genetic code and partly the result of early-life experiences. In this presentation I will discuss the results of 8 years of field research conducted with my students in Maine (USA), which allowed us to demonstrate that the personality of small mammals (mice, squirrels and voles) can have cascade consequences on the functioning of whole ecosystems.
