Extreme Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) represents the largest investment ever made in scientific research in Romania. It is worth more than 320M Euro and is co-financed by the European Commission and the Romanian Government from Structural Funds via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Due to its unique characteristics this infrastructure will provide new opportunities for the study of fundamental processes occurring in light-matter interaction and will focus on laser-based nuclear physics. ELI-NP will provide state of the art laboratories addressing a broad range of scientific research area from frontier fundamental physics, new nuclear physics and astrophysics to applications in nuclear material and radioactive waste management, material science and life sciences that will actively promote its benefits for the society.

Lectures are held on Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 13:00 and last for two hours, with a 10-minute break, for twelve consecutive weeks.
Sessions during the 2019-20 academic year will begin on 15 Sept. 2019 and 15 March 2020.
Each twelve-week session covers the same general topics.
ELI-NP and IFIN-HH scientists and engineers serve as volunteer instructors. Sometimes there will be invited scientists from Romania or abroad.
The lectures probably will be recorded on a systematic basis and may be posted on the web page of the "Saturday Morning Physics at ELI-NP" program and also on Youtube channel and Facebook.
Students who attend and complete classes of the twelve-week course will be awarded a Certificate of Accomplishment.
The certificate is handed over at a closing ceremony.
The certificate can not be used as a professional attestation document, but some faculties may grant credits to program graduates.
