This workshop is dedicated to future nuclear physics research in Italy with particular emphasis on INFN laboratories that are preparing important upgrades for the accelerators complexes.

The workshop is divided into three sessions, one for each laboratory:

Session 1 – LNS (4-5 April 2022)

Session 2 – LNL (11-12 April 2022)

Session 3 – LNGS/LNF (date to be announced)

The workshop will be prepared by researchers participating to specific working groups that will report their activities in the final events. These working groups will address the future research opportunities in their laboratories.
