An entire day devoted to culture and movement, for people of any age who wanted to dive into the natural beauties of the Bolognese territory and listen to the extraordinary music of Theremin.

PRIME 2009

July 15th, 2009
University College, Cork, Republic of Ireland

PRIME 2009 - 5th international conference on Ph.D. Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (July 12th-17th)

GUGLIELMO MARCONI, ENTREPRENEUR, NOBEL PRIZE FOR PHYSICS 1909

organised by
Michael Peter Kennedy (Department of Microelectronic Engineering, University College, Cork) and Barbara Valotti (Marconi Museum - Marconi Foundation)

A special session on Marconi was dedicated to the career of the young Bolognese scientist, with a particular focus on Marconi’s relationship with his Irish mother Annie, who encouraged and supported him since the very beginning, and on Marconi’s entrepreneurial activities, whose foundations were lain in the United Kingdom, especially in London, and later on spread throughout the world. Marconi’s international vocation is highly proved by the Nobel Prize he won at only 35 years old.

David Sarnoffsarnoff

Marconi was the creator of the present day civilization of the radio. All of those who, with spirit of initiative and perseverance, have brought us to the present stage of development have built on the foundations laid by Marconi. Everyone considered him the tutelary genius of their work.
