Nordic Particle Accelerator Program (NPAP)

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 by MAX IV Laboratory, European Spallation Source (ESS), Lund, Uppsala, Aarhus, Oslo and Jyväskylä Universities, (also with a partnership of 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, also widely disseminated through Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs–  accessible to various audiences within the public and private sectors in Europe, including the healthcare and environmental sectors. The NPAP aims to broaden the opportunities for education in accelerator physics and technology and to introduce students to the field of accelerator physics. Ultimately, we hope to encourage students to conduct their master’s / Ph.D. project in accelerator physics.

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.
