The school follows an over ten-year long tradition: at first it was organized every 2-3 years, whereas in recent years it is held annually. The primary aim of the school is to provide insights into the neutron beam based structure analysis of materials. In addition it provides a forum for students to connect their own area of research with neutron investigation methods.

This year the school hosted 31 participants from 18 countries, who have shown strong interest to learn the basics of the theory, practice and data treatment of neutron science. The 15 hours of theoretical training were delivered by international researchers from renown facilities. After learning the theory, the students could employ what they learned over 14 hours of practical training at the BNC neutron facilities. To conclude the school, participants received well-deserved diplomas. Special awards were given to the most active participants.

The CETS school is financially supported by SINE2020. The support is fundamental to ensure a stable number of participants who can have their travel expenses covered. For further information on the SINE2020 Education&Training Activities click here .
