Astrophysics Data Camp at University of Padova

The University of Padua keeps encouraging and renewing an internationalization strategy worldwide both to turn its degree programmes into open, innovative, and international learning environments and to boost its visibility, attractiveness and reputation for an increasingly better international ranking. Through the ‘Shaping a World-class University’ Project, the University aims to continue to support internationalization activities of different kinds. In 2023, funds were granted to organize a school of gamma-ray astronomy and statistics for bachelor students in physics or astronomy from the Universities of Padova, Barcelona, and Bergen. The duration of the school is 5 days, during which the students will learn basic concepts of high-energy astrophysics and statistical analysis with emphasis on hands-on exercises.


International School Attendance

The school is meant for Bachelor students of Physics or Astronomy or similar degrees from the University of Padova, University of Bergen and Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. About 20 positions are available. For a limited number of non-Italian students, travel and lodging reimbursement will be granted. In order to apply to the school contact or
