Call for proposals

To actively involve the community in the training of young scientists we welcome proposals for the Doctoral Training Programme (DTP) to be run at ECT* in the summer 2020. Typically the DTP runs for up to 4 weeks and is limited to 30/40 international students who are in the process of obtaining a Ph.D. in sub-atomic physics, or related areas. Attendees will have opportunities to interact with the lecturers and organizers outside the lectures, tutorials, and problem-solving sessions. 

The subject of the planned DTP should be in line with the main scientific interests of ECT*, i.e. Nuclear Physics in a broad sense, including Nuclear Structure and Reactions, Nuclear Astrophysics, Quantum Chromodynamics and Hadron Physics, the Physics of Matter under Extreme Conditions and Ultra-Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions. Related areas of research include topics in Astrophysics and Cosmology, Particle Physics and methods of Quantum-Field Theory, Condensed Matter Physics and Many-Body Theory, Computational Physics and the Physics of Ultra-Cold Atomic Gases.

The Scientific Board encourages Organizing Committees to consist of a combination of established and early-career researchers.

Decisions on approvals will be made at the Scientific Board meeting on October 11, 2019. Therefore, proposals should be sent to 


before  September 30, 2019.
