Due to the COVID-19 pandemics, the 2020 ESA/FAIR School was cancelled. Even if the pandemics situation remains unclear and we cannot be sure that a school in-person will be possible, we have decided to open the registration for the 2021 school (September 12-28, 2021). Students that had already applied fo the 2020 school do not need to reapply.

ESA/FAIR School 2021 is cancelled!

The ESA-FAIR Radiation Summer School will contribute to research and development in the field of biomedical and biophysical applications of heavy ions in Europe and will highlight ESA’s commitment to stimulate the pursuit of education in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines as well as to foster interest and generate expertise relevant to Human Spaceflight activities. The school will be unique worldwide and is expected to attract large attention from the international community.

The course will consist of lectures from experts in the field, site visits to facilities in Darmstadt (ESOC, GSI, FAIR), and practical training at GSI.

The application period for the 2021 program opens April 1, 2021 and will close June 30, 2021.
