European Schools

The European School in Israel was originally planned for November 2021 but had to be postponed to May 2022 due to the Covid pandemic. 

In line with the CERN Council’s decisions following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the European School of HEP has been further postponed.

The revised dates for the School are Wednesday 30 November (arrivals) to Tuesday 13 December (departures), 2022. The organisational arrangements will be determined in due course and the School will take place irrespective of these.

Please note that applications for the School are now closed.

More information is available on the 2022 School webpage.


The School is organised jointly each year by CERN (website) and JINR (website).

The current series of Schools has been running since 1993:
