The IFF Spring School


Just how lively an exchange between students and young scientists can be is demonstrated every year at the IFF Spring School - an important event for communicating current issues in physics for more than 45 years now.

Of the 200-300 students who attend each year, many return to attend the lectures in subsequent years, and some go on to further their research careers at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Another great success has been the book of manuscripts from the Spring School lectures; this publication has proved very useful to students as it can be used as a textbook and it is often the first work of reference in a new research field.
