The new year has got off to a great start with the signature on 23 January of a tripartite agreement…
Looking back at 2022
The year started under the continuing shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic, with both the Joint Universities Accelerator School (JUAS) and the European School of Instrumentation for Particle and Astroparticle Physics (ESIPAP) run on-line between January and March. Building on the success of the 2021 on-line editions, several innovations were implemented to ensure that high standards were maintained for the 93 students participating in ESI’s winter programme.
The long-awaited return to face-to-face teaching came in June with the first of the Philippe Sabatier BioHealth Computing schools, Precision Oncology. This was followed by Computational Medicine in August, Learning from Health Data in September and UHC School Lab in October, the four schools mobilising 113 students in all.
In July, the first edition of the I.FAST challenge brought together 23 students of physics, engineering, environmental science, law and business to design innovative solutions to environmental challenges using particle accelerators. The year came to an end in December with the Science Trading workshop in which 14 students had the opportunity to meet and interact with export-driven companies based at ArchParc.
