The Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) is an international PhD school and a center for research and higher education in the areas of Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Social Sciences.
Located in central Italy, the school welcomes professors, researchers and students selected internationally following the best graduate schools standards worldwide. The PhD program is organized in the scientific areas of Astroparticle Physics, Mathematics, Computer science, Regional Sciences and Economic Geography. Every year we offer Post doctoral grants and research opportunities thus facilitating the attraction of high-level resources in the fields of natural and social sciences.
Through a day-to-day collaboration and interaction, researchers and students have the opportunity to build a sound knowledge of the research methods and to experiment contamination of interests, innovative approaches and multicultural exchanges in all the GSSI activities. In addressing the complexity of today’s world, we are committed to removing all barriers between the GSSI areas of study and research, where interdisciplinarity and cross-fertilization underlie everything we do. Among our goals are the dissemination of scientific results towards society and the promotion of cultural events for generic public, citizens and schools.
Our main goal is to strengthen the scientific excellence in L’Aquila area, where many skills and highly specialized structures, such as the Gran Sasso National Laboratories of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the University of L’Aquila, are already present. Further, our Institute intends to promote collaborations with many national and international institutions and to interact with public and private realities in order to stimulate innovation and knowledge based communities.
