University of Naples Federico II

The University of Naples Federico II is a university located in Naples, Italy. Founded in 1224 it is the oldest public non-religious university in the world, and is now organized in 13 faculties. It was Europe's first university dedicated to training secular administrative staff, and one of the oldest academic institutions in continuous operation. Federico II is the third University in Italy by number of students enrolled, despite its huge dimensions it still represents one of the best Universities in Italy being an excellence in particular for research; in 2015 it was ranked among the first 100 universities in the world by citations per paper. In 2016 it's the only generalist Italian university in the Times higher education reputation, which considers the best 200 best universities in the world. The university is named after its founder Frederick II. From October 2016 the University hosts the first ever Apple IOS Developer Academy.

Department of Physics logo

Department of Physics "Ettore Pancini" (University of Naples Federico II)

Recently entitled to the name of the renowned scientist Ettore Pancini (who taught here for about 20 years), the Physics Department is currently the one with the largest number of academic staff among Physics Departments in Italy. The Department goal is the development of scientific culture and the academic training up to the Ph.D. level in its reference fields. The strength of the Department is the possibility to share within one single institution human and computing resources, Laboratories and infrastructures needed for the scientific, didactic, training and educational activities of its members. With more than 120 academic staff members and about 80 post-doc and Ph.D. students, covering all of the main Physics research fields, the Department is currently involved in several collaborations with Italian as well as international research institutions. We cite here among others the ones with INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare), and with CNR (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche), the Napoli section of INFN and the Napoli unit of CNR's SPIN (Istituto Superconduttori, Matariali Innovativi e Dispositivi) being hosted inside the "Ettore Pancini" Department buildings. Other collaborations include the Vesuvio's Observatory (Osservatorio Vesuviano ,INGV), the Astronomical Observatory (Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte, INAF) and the istitutes of CNR ISASI (Istituto di Scienze Applicate & Sistemi Intelligenti) and IMAA (Istituto di Metodologie per l'Analisi Ambientale).
