We have launched the call for SUMTRAIC

IPP is happy to announce the application opening for its 18th Summer Training School called SUMTRAIC.


Since 2003, the aim of the event is to give participants a practical training on all aspects of fusion research. Participants will be provided with a relevant scientific topic, mentored by experienced staff members of the IPP and analyzed experimental data coming from the COMPASS tokamak. The last day, participants will present their two-weeks work (in English) in front of the broad audience of the IPP. Any students interested in fusion science can apply to the event by providing a CV, a cover letter and a motivation letter on the event's website.

Note about current restrictions: The organizers are aware that, currently, traveling is complicated and that it is difficult to foresee what will be happening at the beginning of September. Nevertheless, they would like to perpetuate that long tradition event and hope it can still happen. Be aware that in case the situation worsen, the IPP will not reimburse traveling expenses and that the event may have to be canceled at the very last moment. The organizers would like to apologize for these inconveniences.
