The European Centre for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*) in Trento (Italy) provides a dedicated and structured combination of scientific activities for a large international scientific community. ECT* acts as an "intellectual" centre of competence, complementary in scope and activities to existing research facilities based at universities or experimental laboratories. It promotes coordination of European research efforts in nuclear physics and related research areas.
Main activities of ECT* are workshops, collaboration meetings, doctoral training programmes and specialised courses. We also offers visiting fellowships for junior and senior researchers.
The Swiss representative in ECT* is Gilberto Colangelo (University of Bern), webpage
