Training new users of ion beam technology

Astrid Berens

The RADIATE project partners are invested in training the next generation of ion beam scientists as well as in expanding the current user base at ion beam infrastructures.

RADIATE is hosting and supporting several “summer schools” aimed at students to foster awareness of ion beams in future scientists. The first summer school is taking place in the framework of IBA2019 in Paris, France. The RADIATE summer school 2020 will precede the Ion Beam Modification of Materials conference (IBMM) in Portugal.

To attract new users, RADIATE is committed to promote ion beam technology and its research possibilities by offering a twinning program for new users and a guest researcher program for more experienced users. The main target group of the twinning and guest researcher programs are scientists from countries without national ion beam facilities, but others are not excluded from applying.
