Our series of postgraduate-level lectures are provided as a free online resource. Presented at our main Daresbury Campus and also available online (both live and recorded), our introductory courses are given annually during the autumn semester, with advanced courses given in the spring/summer semester. Our taught material covers topics under the themes of general accelerator science, RF systems, beam dynamics, magnets and short-wavelength accelerators (such as plasma and dielectric accelerators). All lectures are given by internationally-respected physicists and engineers. An exciting seminar series augments this, and we invite both internal and external speakers to present their world-leading research at the CI.
In addition, CI has been the driving force behind a number of European training initiatives in accelerator science and technology. Through the DITANET (beam diagnostics), oPAC (Optimization of Particle Accelerators), LA³NET (Laser Applications at Accelerators), OMA (Optimization of Medical Accelerators) and AVA (Accelerators Validating Antimatter physics) projects, CI researchers have proposed and coordinated some of the largest training initiatives in Europe – in any scientific area.
