The Masterclass is the most structured ESO educational activity whose format has been established and presented in Europe for over a decade. The success of the teaching method
has been confirmed by the events held also in other parts of the world as well as by the first edition held in Brazil in 2015.
It is with pleasure and gratefulness for the consideration of the local community, the 2015 Masterclass participants as well as the Masterclass core faculty, that ESO and ESMO will held the second edition in April 2016.
