Study Program Group

The aim of the group is strengthening and development of Baltic High Energy Physics community by development of the Baltic international multidisciplinary masters/doctoral lever study program in High Energy Physics and Accelerator Technologies.

The first step is already taken – RTU has submitted a proposal for European Structural funds project contest for development of doctoral study program «High Energy Particle Physics and Accelerator Technologies». The evaluation of proposal is expected till this summer.

  • Objectives of the program are following:
  1. To maximize EE, LV, LT return from CERN membership – for industry and for research institution/universities.
  2. To minimize brain drain.
  3. Opportunity for new generations.
  4. To prepare specialists for industries in Baltic Countries – both physics and accelerator technologies.
  • Group has agreed:
  1. To keep it open for international students and not to limit to Members.
  2. To avoid fragmentation – to have broad subjects.
  3. To include Big data and data science in curricula on top of high energy particle physics and accelerator technology.
  4. To do risk/benefit analysis for all participants – to have situation awareness.
  • Challenges:
  1. How to get enough students interested?
  2. Legal issues – double diplomas, etc.
  3. Mobility of students.
  4. Distance learning and modular system.
