Welcome to a new accademic year


Welcome to all users of ARSI!

After closure for necessary building upgrading, we are delighted to welcome researchers to ARSI once again from 21 September 2020.

This has been a particularly difficult and uncertain time for researchers, with sudden limitations on travel, and the closure of research facilities.
