The main objective of the MAYORANA (Multi-Aspect Young ORiented Advanced Neutrino Academy) School&Workshop is to promote a collaborative framework of  young and senior researchers from the fields of nuclear, particle and astroparticle neutrino physics to discuss theories and experiments in which interdisciplinary aspects are particularly relevant.

The event will be host in the wonderful town of Modica (Sicily-Italy) at the historical Palazzo Grimaldi. The School will take place from July 4 to 11 2023 and the Workshop from July 12 to 14.

The School is addressed to doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and young researchers from worldwide limited to 50 participants. The School activities will consist of 40 hours organized in lectures, dedicated sessions through posters and mini-talks presented by the students and face-to-face discussions with the professors. Prizes will be awarded to the best mini-talks and posters. The students are also invited to attend the Workshop gaining the opportunity to know about most advanced studies in the field.

The Workshop will take place just after the School. The aim is to connect researchers from different communities in order to discuss recent results and challenges of modern neutrino physics.
