Physics UGOE smallThe HASCO Summer School 2019 will take place at the University of Göttingen from 21 to 26 July 2019.

The main objectives of the hadron collider physics school (HASCO) are introductory topics in elementary particle physics, in particular in hadron collider physics as relevant for research at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This includes lectures and tutorials on theoretical foundations of the Standard Model of elementary particle physics as well as experimental techniques to test it. Furthermore, a focus is placed on statistical data analysis and an introduction to the software package ROOT. In addition, students will have the opportunity to discuss state of the art measurements and results with senior scientists in the field

Groningen Summer Schools 2019 1 smallThe University of Groningen is delighted to publicise this year’s offering of research-intensive and multidisciplinary summer and winter schools.

A truly international experience; last year over 1500 students from 115 different nationalities joined the courses! Quite some U4 students and PhD were among the participants and got a flavour of studying abroad, making friends and building a professional network.

Check them out on www.rug.nl/summerschools.



Groningen Staff Training 2019 1 smallFrom 13 to 17 May 2019, the University of Groningen will organize its 5th Erasmus+ Staff week. The theme of this event will be ‘The ideal research support office’.

Different aspects of the question ‘How is research supported at universities?’, will be highlighted. The main topics will be:

Graduate Schools
How are the Graduate schools organised and how do they operate? How does the university support PhD students and give them a platform to develop themselves as researchers and prepare them for their future career?

Research Impact & Open Science
How can we enhance and measure the academic and societal impact of research? Open access becomes a more and more familiar concept, but how do you realize openness in research?
