European Schools

The European School in Israel was originally planned for 2020, but had to be postponed several times as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia in February 2022 and subsequent decisions by CERN Council, it was agreed that the 2022 European School of HEP would be organised by CERN alone, without further involvement from JINR. We acknowledge the participation of the JINR members of the International Organising Committee prior to that date, including in defining the scientific programme and making the selection of students for the School.

The revised dates for the School are Wednesday 30 November (arrivals) to Tuesday 13 December (departures), 2022. 

Please note that applications for the School are now closed.

More information is available on the 2022 School webpage.


The current series of Schools has been running since 1993:
