Summer Programs

2020

August
This year's student program was planned to be held at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) with five Master's students from the Department of Physics (School of Science, UTokyo), three graduate students from ETH Zürich, and three students from Italy, but was cancelled owing to restrictions on overseas travel.
July 5 - 24 [Expanding the partnership: UZH]
One cooperative research fellow from the Graduate School of Information Science and Technology (UTokyo) participated in the first 3-week online summer school program on blockchain technology organized by the University of Zürich (Prof. Claudio Tessone and the UZH Blockchain Center). The aim of the program was for students to develop an understanding of the three critical pillars of blockchain systems, namely the technological, economic, and legal aspects, and to explore other fields of application, such as forensics and data analytics.

2019

September 5 - 6
Four Master's students from the Department of Physics (School of Science, UTokyo), two graduate students from ETH Zürich, three students from Italy, and a Master's student from the International Center for Elementary Particle Physics (ICEPP)'s collaboration partner at Kyushu University participated in the fifth summer school program held at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). The aim of the program is to teach students about cutting-edge research and experimental technology in particle physics through hands-on training and active participation in international collaborative research. Discussions and group work strengthened the interaction between the students.

August 10-12 & August 25-29
A group of five graduate students from the Department of Physics (School of Science, UTokyo) and three graduate students from ETH Zürich participated in the summer school program held at the Paul Scherer Institute (PSI). They worked together on laboratory apparatus used in international collaborations to learn about state-of-the-art research and experimental technology related to particle physics. The program provided students from both universities with the opportunity to interact with each other through joint activities and discussions.
