Registration for the first edition of the European School in Instrumentation for Particle and Astroparticle Physics [ESIPAP] is now open.

ESIPAP was founded by the French laboratory of excellence ENIGMASS and offers advanced and intensive modular courses in instrumentation for students (Master and Ph.D.) and for professionals.

The School will take place at the European Scientific Institute [ESI] in Archamps, France, close to Geneva, Switzerland. Laboratory sessions will be held at CERN.

The organisation of ESIPAP is similar to that of the Joint University Accelerator School [JUAS]: the courses are organised in two modules of one month each, that can be followed together or separately. All lectures will end with an evaluation of the students, allowing ESIPAP to award course credits that are compatible with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System [ECTS], and recognised in European university training programmes.

ESIPAP has established collaborations with the Universities of Strasbourg, Grenoble, Savoie, and with INP Grenoble and seeks to develop further partnerships with European universities.

The first edition of the School will be held from 20 January to 15 March 2014.

More information and the application form are available on the school website.

Researchers’ Night in Debrecen, Hungary

The University of Debrecen has been participating in European Researchers' Night for many years. The Debrecen Young Minds section also participated, offering activities in five different themes.

In the park of the Nuclear Research Centre [Atomki], people could try the water bottle rocket built by a student in electric engineering. Not far from there under the attacks of giant bubbles one could submerge his/her hands into a big bowl of oobleck (a non-newtonian suspension of cornstarch and water). Entering the building a few students and...
