Participants of the 13th CETS, 2019​

We are happy to announce that the 14th Central European Training School on Neutron Techniques will be held in autumn 2021.

CETS 2021 Flyer
The school is planned to be held in hybrid mode: a virtual (on-line) theoretical module and a hands-on training module. Due to the uncertainty regarding the regulations on COVID-19, the exact date of the school will be announced later. Students of Hungarian Universities are encouraged to register; from this year the CETS course is accredited by the Doctoral School of Physics of Eötvös Loránd University and by the Doctoral School of Physical Sciences of Budapest University of Technology and Economics.

The Central European Training School on neutron techniques is organized by the Budapest Neutron Centre (BNC).

The objective of the neutron school is to provide actual hands-on practice – following a theoretical introduction to neutron scattering and to the various neutron based methods for studying the structure and composition of matter. Primarily we welcome doctoral students and young scientists, but applications from MSc and BSc students may also be considered.

Registration is required for both the theoretical and hands-on modules. There is no size limit for the on-line course, however, due to space restrictions at the experimental stations, the hands-on training will be limited to 25 students. Students will be selected for the practical sessions based on their submitted abstracts and interest in using neutron scattering methods for their own research projects.

The course is followed by an on-line multiple choice test, successful completion of which is a pre-requisite for the awarding of a certificate and/or university credits.

Applicants are encouraged to send an abstract of their scientific work or work plan. Accepted abstracts will be published in a volume with an ISBN number.
