Eugenio Scapparone started his research activity in 1989 with the MACRO experiment at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory, being involved in the study of high energy muons and of atmospheric neutrino oscillations. In 1997 he was appointed Run Coordinator of the experiment. In the late 1990s he contributed to the development of a scintillating fiber calorimeter for  the CNGS beam. He moved to Bologna in 2002 to participate in the construction of the ALICE TOF, coordinating its first level trigger. In 2008, as CERN Scientific Associate he was appointed ALICE Deputy Commissioning Coordinator and became member of its Technical Board.
