For the first time Nordic and European expertise came together to produce content not only for students and researchers but also for professionals and members of the broader community.
Our unique program – developed in cooperation with MAX IV Laboratory, European Spallation Source (ESS), Lund, Uppsala, Aarhus, Oslo and Jyväskylä Universities and in partnership with several European universities – aims to ensure future European accelerators with expertise in pulsed neutrons and synchrotronic radiation technology.
The intellectual outputs of the program have been disseminated through campus-based Summer Schools in Lund. Further, the outputs will also be widely disseminated through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) at Coursera– accessible to various audiences within the public and private sectors in Europe, in due course.
NPAP aims to broaden the opportunities for education in accelerator physics and technology with the purpose of encouraging students to conduct their master’s / Ph.D. project in accelerator physics as well as encouraging professionals (e.g. medical physicists, radiologists or engineers) to move into the world of accelerator technology. Ultimately, we strive to enhance interest and support future professionals in the field as well as establishing a broader use of the intellectual and technological outputs that particle accelerator research provides.
This program is an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for higher education project and a Key Action 2 Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices. Funded by the European Union.
