The first Tritium School organised by the TRANSAT project will be held from 25-28 March 2019 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

It will comprise two days of lectures by guest speakers, followed by two days of contributed talks and a poster session. Both researchers and students working on experiments or theory are strongly encouraged to participate.


Lunches and the event dinner are included in the registration fees.

Moreover, financial support can be offered to few students. If you need it, please indicate it in the registration form and send a free-form letter to justify your request signed by your supervisor/head of department to
