Trainee participates in Vespucci Summer Institute

Julio Mateo received a fellowship to participate in the Vespucci Summer Institute workshop on Cognitive Processing and Representations of Place, Space, and Time.

Celebrating the fifth centenary of Vespucci’s discoveries, the Vespucci Initiative recaptures his spirit of multi-disciplinary intellectual enquiry to explore new frontiers of knowledge. To that end it organizes and conducts a range of research and teaching activities, bringing together senior scientists and promising young researchers from around the world. This unique interdisciplinary mix creates what has been called the Medici Effect. (Perhaps it is no coincidence that the summer institutes are held in Florence!)
