On Monday 17th November Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, visited the laboratories of the Enea "Centro di Ricerca Frascati" (Frascati Research Centre), recognised for a high quality research on nuclear fusion. Professor Federico Testa as the Enea commissioner and as the director of the department of Business Administration of the University of Verona, received him.
Gates, taken to the laboratories by Professor Testa and by the scientists of the Centre, wanted to discover the research activities in the field of low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR), more known as cold fusion, led in the institute.
As a matter of fact, the Enea Frascati Research Centre is considered a high quality centre in this field on a worldwide level.
