“Bridging knowledge to professionals as well as establishing a broader use of the intellectual and technological outputs that particle accelerator research provides.”
Welcome to the NPAP!
Are you working within or are interested in the field of particle accelerators? Then you are at the right place!
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 synchotron radiation technology.
Our NPAP Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
Useful knowledge today is widely distributed, and no company or organisation, no matter how capable or how big, could innovate effectively on its own.
This is one of the reasons why we constructed our three MOOCs, thus proving a teaching and learning concept and platform that can connect seemingly disparate disciplines and activities together.
Introduction to Particle Accelerators (NPAP MOOC)
We believe that the future of expansion as well as innovation in the field of particle accelerator technology and science is closely linked to a need for as many creative people as possible to join the area. All that is needed is a computer and Wifi to get started! The MOOCs will be accessible to various audiences within the public and private sectors in Europe as well as internationally. The NPAP MOOCs have been released to the public, at the Coursera.org platform. Welcome!
