PlasmaSurf 2018

On Sunday, July 8, 27 students from several different countries arrived in the city of Lisbon, and they found themselves in Técnico, to participate in the PlasmaSurf 2018 programme. It was here that they began the adventure of a week, which led them to meet new people, share experiences and learn from IPFN researchers.

According to the students that attended, 'Plasmasurf is a summer school on plasma physics, intense lasers and nuclear fusion that aims to introduce you these topics, or in case of you are already well-versed, to improve your knowledge in them. Moreover, it is a great opportunity to meet brilliant people, and enjoy outdoor activities. We arrived in Lisbon on a sunny day when the summer school started with the team-building activities that made us a cohesive team in the end.'

''The worst part of Plasmasurf 2018 was saying goodbye to all the friends we had made during the week' they said, many of them hoping to come back to pursue their studies here at IPFN.
