CERN openlab summer students arrive at CERN

Monday, 19 June, 2017

Today, the first students participating in the 2017 CERN openlab Summer Student Programme have arrived at CERN. In total, 37 students were selected from over 1500 applicants to the programme. The remaining students will arrive over the next two weeks.

The students will spend nine weeks at CERN working on a range of exciting projects. They will also attend fascinating lectures, take part in organised visits to other research institutions and companies, and gain hands-on experience with the latest ICT hardware and software.

The lecture series for the summer students includes talks from leading experts in a range of fields related to ICT and high-energy physics. The lectures, which are listed in our events calendar, can be followed online via webcast.

CERN openlab has now been running its summer student programme for 15 years, with over 300 students coming to the laboratory as part of the programme. More information about the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme is available on our dedicated page
