About the center

The "Ettore Majorana" Foundation and International Centre for Scientific Culture is named after an outstanding Italian physicist, born in Sicily in 1906.

Every year the Centre of Erice hosts several workshops covering different scientific disciplines (e.g. physics, medicine, chemistry, life sciences etc.) for hundreds of participating scientists. It was founded 45 years ago. Since then, this centre has represented an important meeting place for scientists from all over the world.

Embracing 118 schools, covering all branches of science, the Centre is situated in the old pre-mediaeval city of Erice where three restored monasteries provide an appropriate setting for high intellectual endeavour.
