The Onassis Foundation Science Lecture Series

The Onassis Science Lectures are organized on a yearly basis in the month of July. The purpose of the lectures - which are jointly organized by the Alexandros Onassis Foundation and FORTH - is the enrichment of young talented scientists and students via lecture series of the highest level. The main speakers of these lectures are recipients of the Nobel Prize or of equivalent scientific stature. The Scientific Director of the Lectures is Ioannis Papamastorakis, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Physics of the University of Crete.

The 2020 lectures on "Gravitational Waves", due to the travel restrictions related to COVID-19, had been postponed for two consecutive years and they finally took place in the summer of  2022.

More information is available in the Onassis Science Lectures website.
