Start of GSI Summer Student Program
35 students from 17 countries take part in this year’s Summer Student Program at GSI and FAIR. They spend eight weeks on the campus. During their stay they participate actively in GSI and FAIR experiments and get to know the everyday life at an accelerator institute.
Every summer student gets the chance to work on his own research project within the current GSI and FAIR experiments. The topics range from accelerator science to tumour therapy and astrophysics. In public lectures, which are part of the program, the summer students learn about GSI and FAIR research and scientific results.
For many of the students, who come mainly from European but also from other GSI and FAIR partner countries, the Summer Student Program is the first step to a masters or doctorates thesis at GSI. The Summer Student Program, which takes place for the 35th time, is organised by the graduate school HGS-HIRe. Apart from the scientific program there are also social events like cooking together or exploring the region.
The public lectures are in English and are open to everyone. Lecture Program
