The ELI-NP Summer School 2019 was held in excellent conditions at Hotel Mara in Sinaia during the week of September 9th to 13th. More than 25 posters were exhibited for the School duration and 21 of them participated in the ELI-NP Summer School Poster Contest. The Award went to Mr. Itamar Cohen, from the School of Physics and Astronomy, Tel Aviv University, Israel, for theposter entitled “Intense photo-nuclear reactions with exploding foils”.


In 2019, the year when the Extreme Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) laser system has reached its design parameters of 10 PW, the ELI-NP Summer School is dedicated to "Nuclear Physics with High Power Lasers".

ELI-NP, the Romanian pillar of the European project Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI), is being implemented in Măgurele, Romania, funded mostly from European Regional Development Funds as part of a Distributed Research Infrastructure, with the two other pillars, ELI-Beamlines and ELI-Attoseconds in Donli Brezany, Czech Republic, and Szeged, Hungary, respectively.

The ELI-NP Summer School 2019 will take place between 9 to 12 September 2019 in Sinaia, a beautiful mountain resort situated 120 km North of Bucharest. The Summer school will end on Friday, 13 September, with a visit of the ELI-NP facility in Măgurele.

The School aims at introducing PhD students and young researchers to the novel research perspectives in the physics and applications of high-power lasers, covering the following topics:

All participants are encouraged to present their work in a poster (to be prepared in A0 format, portrait orientation) that will be exhibited for the duration of the summer school.

The organization of ELI-NP Summer School is supported by Romanian Ministry of Research and Innovation, through the Contract 36PFE/2018.
