The Varenna Energy School, one of the most
interesting known to us, is jointly organised by the Italian Physical Society
and the European Physical Society, and will take place in Varenna, Italy (Lago
di Como) in the second half of July (17-22 July 2023).
The School is intended for not only for PhD students and postdoctoral
researchers, but is also a unique source of information to researchers.
The Lecture Notes of past editions of the School are available in open access
on the online journal EPJ WoC - Web of Conferences.
All information and how to participate can be found at this LINK: https://en.sif.it/courses/energy_school
For students and researchers, in these troubling energy times, this school will
provide the info needed for a better
understanding of the problems involved in the energy transition.
The deadline for application is 10 May.

500,000 watts, four seconds: Successful start for the heating system with radio waves in Wendelstein 7-X
Great success for German-Belgian fusion research: An innovative heating system with radio waves was used for the first time in the world's largest stellarator Wendelstein 7-X at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Greifswald. Using a new type of antenna, the power of more than 500,000 watts could be radiated into a helium plasma for four seconds without any disruption to the plasma operation. The new ion heating system for the Greifswald fusion experiment is based on the design of the Laboratory for Plasma Physics at the Royal Military Academy in Brussels and was built in close cooperation with the Institute for Plasma Physics and the Central Institute for Engineering, Electronics and Analytics at Forschungszentrum Jülich.
The new heating system includes some improvements over traditional designs based on previous research in the TEXTOR tokamak experiment at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

KU Leuven is organising for the first time a 'Summer of Science', a three day summer camp which will take place from 16 to 19 July 2023 at Campus Heverlee (and the dorms De Vesten).
This new summer school gives you a perfect opportunity to learn, sample, and perform real science as a researcher for three days. This summer school is open to all high school students; its primary audience is Flemish high school students. However, the courses (and this website) are in English as most of the teachers are researchers of international origin.
Deadline for applications is Wednesday 8 March 2023.

Registration is closed.
