EDIT is a symposium of Excellence devoted to young researchers, in their graduate studies or in their first year as a post doc, seeking to acquire a deeper knowledge on the major aspects of detectors and instrumentation technologies.

This goal is achieved by providing a diversified program that integrates topical academic courses with hands-on laboratories.

The practice-oriented approach of the symposium will be particularly profitable for physicists with limited hardware experience, as they can explore the performance and limitations of the technologies which are used in state-of-the-art experiments.

Participants’ understanding of technologies will be extended beyond their immediate circle to a broader view, favoring strong skills in understanding the operation of Detectors and fostering innovative ideas on R&D and data interpretation.
