  • 2017 Alpbach Summer School The 2017 Alpbach Summer School is entitled "The Dusty Universe” and it will take place on 18-27 July 2017 at Alpbach/Tyrol, Austria.
    Sixty European engineering and science students will be chosen by an international committee of experts to participate in this 41st Summer School Alpbach, a ten day learning opportunity held in the beautiful Austrian Alps. Participants will be engaged in an in-depth learning experience. Over ten days they will attend stimulating lectures on various aspects of space science and engineering and will work intensely within smaller groups to define and design a space mission under the supervision of noted scientific and engineering experts within the field.
    The topic of the Summer School Alpbach 2017 is “Dust in the Universe”. Understanding dust, its role in and use as a diagnostic for cosmic evolution has tremendously benefited from space missions covering the electromagnetic spectrum from X-rays to mm wavelengths, and will do so in the future. Students at the Alpbach Summer School 2017 will be informed about past achievements and current issues, and will be invited to propose ideas to further explore the dusty Universe.
    Financial support for any greek student selected will be provided. The application deadline is March 31, 2017. For more information visit:
