Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 CERN openlab summer-student programme has been cancelled. We do, however, have a range of exciting online educational activities lined up for the summer.
CERN's annual 'Webfest' will be held online on the weekend of 27-28 June. As always, the event is open to all. Find out more (including how to register) here: https://webfest-online.web.cern.ch/.
We are pleased to announce that we are able to provide mentoring for a small number of those people originally selected for the 2020 edition of our summer-student programme. This is currently foreseen for around a dozen students. Selections have been made based on the practical feasibility of working with certain technologies at distance, as well as on the availability of supervisors.
Online lecture programme
Recordings of lectures from last year's programme are available via the links below. We are also working to organise a number of online training and Q&A sessions. These will soon be added to the list below, as well as to our event calendar.
