ESIPAP, the European School of Instrumentation for Particle and Astroparticle Physics, was launched in 2014 at the initiative of ENIGMASS (a federative structure comprising the University of Grenoble-Alpes and four academic research facilities: LPSC, LAPP, LAPTH and LSM).
ESIPAP comprises two month-long courses which can be followed consecutively or over two years.
The school is selective : only 16 places are available.
Course 1 (22 Jan. - 16 Feb.) : Physics of particle and astroparticle detectors - a 4 week course
Course 2 (19 Feb. - 16 March) : Technologies and Applications - 4 separate modules
Module 1 - Detector Technologies & Electronics
Module 2 - Real Time Computing & Data Handling
Module 3 - Mechanics & Medical Applications
Module 4 - Offline Computing
CERN and LPSC Grenoble organise and hosts practical courses in the form of « lab sessions ».
Both modules are concluded by an evaluation which enables students to gain ECTS credits recognised by the European partner universities.
