This is the Kick-off event for the Helmholtz International Research School for Astroparticle Physics and Enabling Technologies from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany and the Universidad Nacional de San Martín (UNSAM) in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The aim of the Helmholtz International Research School for Astroparticle Physics and Enabling
Technologies is the development and application of cutting-edge particle detection techniques and
corresponding analysis methods in high-energy astroparticle physics. The graduate school concentrates on the investigation of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. It has an interdisciplinary character by bringing together leading physicists and engineers of the fields of particle detection technologies, data analysis, and model building.
The school builds on a long-standing and very fruitful collaboration between the partner institutes and the existing cotutelle program Double Doctoral degree in Astrophysics (DDAp).
