PAST ACTIVITIES, 2005-2018

Auspices and other initiatives

2020 – 2021

Strengthening the Organization

During the pandemic, many international scientific interchange activities were cancelled or postponed. This has been the case in particular for meetings and conferences the Fondo Elena Moroni used to support and organize or co-organize.
During the last 18 months the FEM, beside converting and running the Enrico Anglesio Prize (EAP) in virtual format, decided to divert part of resources and energies to initiatives aimed to reinforce its organization, to be better prepared for the future.

A renewed website

The website moved to a different IT platform, the WordPress one. While maintaining a graphic line in continuity with the previous one, many parts have been updated both technically and with respect to the contents, and with respect to the frequency of the updating.
Sections (usually in form of subpages) have been created to host the archives for the past activities, many of which, developed since 2006, deserve to be preserved.
The management of the EAP has been largely automated through the website (see below).
As a result, the website revealed more friendly in the accesses, and enhanced a more intense interaction with its visitors.
Statistics speack !
From 01.07.20 to 10.09 21 the FEM website has been visited 65.591 times by 14.130 visitors. Visitors came from 145 countries; 68 of which contributed with more than 10 visitors.  Daily number of visits increased from around 100 during the first month to over 300 during August 2021.
