ICTPcampus

**Please note applications for the 2020 LML Summer School are now closed.**

LML is pleased to announce its 2020 Summer School. This will be held at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy from Monday 6th July to Friday 31st July 2020. Applications are now open.

Activities

Postgraduate students will spend four weeks researching a project under the supervision of LML Fellows and colleagues from the ICTP and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA). Project descriptions can be found here. Students will also attend a series of scientific lectures and a scientific writing course, and the School will culminate with student presentations of their research.

Travel to and from the Summer School, accommodation, and meals will be provided.

Summer School supervisors are active scientists and typically choose open research questions as projects. For many students, this is their first exposure to scientific progress in action, where asking the right questions is at least as important as finding the right answers. Previous students have found this experience changes their view of science as an activity and as a possible career.

Venue

LML will hold its Summer School – in Trieste, Italy. The ICTP is a hub for physicists and mathematicians and a driving force behind global efforts to advance scientific expertise in the developing world. Many ICTP alumni have been recognised for their contributions to science, education, research, and technology, while the centre has helped stem the scientific ‘brain drain’ from developing nations. ICTP is recognised by UNESCO as a Category 1 Institute.

By collaborating with ICTP and SISSA, the LML Summer School brings three world-leading scientific fellowships together and creates a unique opportunity for students.
