This year, the RTU initiative in developing high energy particle physics in Latvia has gained a new direction. RTU High Energy Particle Physics and Accelerator Technology Center prepared an application for the creation of a new doctoral study program in the European Structural Funds Call for Proposals «8.2.1. Reduce fragmentation of study programs and strengthen resource sharing».
The aim of the application is to create a new study program «Particle Physics and Accelerator Technology», which is planned to be implemented together with the University of Latvia and the leading universities of the Baltic States. The motivation for establishing a PhD program in particle physics and accelerator technology is as follows:
Tallinn University of Technology
University of Tartu
Kaunas Technical University
National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics (NICPB), Tallin
Project application evaluation results are expected until mid-2019, when the implementation of the study program can be started.
