During the last general assembly, P. Antici has been elected Fellow of the European Physical Society for his outstanding contribution to physics. “It’s a great honour to be part of such an elite scientific group, and I am very touched by this recognition,” said Professor Antici. “It crowns years of work within the research community, work that has produced such impressive results as the Extreme Light Infrastructure.”

Professor Antici is one of seven new fellows elected in 2015 and one of the youngest scientists to receive this distinction. The European Physical Society has welcomed him as a fellow in recognition of his significant contribution to the creation of major laser and acceleration infrastructure and networks as well as his important work on the development of laser-generated particle sources.
