This great tragedy has the merit of dispelling the fog that has thickened in recent years on public opinion: it has become apparent how important are knowledge, expertise, competency, and organizational capacity; without them, decisions may have devastating effects on people life. I'm convinced, si parva licet, we can play an important role with regards to our field.

Premio UIT 2020 per Tesi di Laurea
E' scaduto il bando per il Premio UIT per la migliore tesi di laurea magistrale nel settore della termofluidodinamica. Sono pervenute 17 domande, da nove università italiane. Nelle prossime settimane si insedierà la commissione per iniziare i lavori di valutazione delle tesi.
On 14th April 2020, the UIT Commission met to select the 2 candidates who will represent Italy at the EUROTHERM Young Scientist Prize and Awards 2020.
The Commission examined 8 Doctoral Theses, judging all them excellent in terms of adopted methodologies and obtained results.
After extensive discussion, the Commission unanimously selected the following two candidates to represent Italy in the EUROTHERM 2020 Prize:
1) Dr. Matteo Fasano with the Doctoral Thesis entitled: "Heat and Mass Transfer of Water at Nanoscale Solid-Liquid Interfaces".
2) Dr. Chiara Falsetti with the Doctoral Thesis entitled: "Experimental characterisation of the thermo-hydraulic performance of a micro-pin fin evaporator: Heat transfer, flow visualization and modelling".
