TOMSK, Apr 8 – RIA Tomsk. Fifty students and young scientists, including those from France, Poland and the Czech Republic, became participants of the second Trans-Siberian school on High Energy Physics, organized by Tomsk Polytechnic University and CERN, the Director of Research School of High-Energy Physics of TPU Leonid Sukhikh told RIA Tomsk.

He noted that the geography of the participants of the second school had expanded significantly and included Kazakhstan, the Czech Republic, Poland, Belarus, France, Siberia, Moscow and the Moscow region. Young scientists arrived in Tomsk to study advanced high-energy physics research during the first week of April.

Mutual interest

The Trans-Siberian School (TSS) brought together 51 students and young scientist who have either conducted research at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) or want to join them, and experienced scientists working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The main task – is to show the researchers at the start of their careers the problems of modern high-energy physics, which the world's largest collaborations are working on.

"Modern level of the challenges facing humanity in the field of research of the fundamental bases of the universe is such that research is possible only when scientists from around the world join large collaborations creating unique installations existing in a single copy, for example, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN", – he told.

Sukhikh reminded that TPU is actively cooperating with CERN in the fields of physics and engineering.

"A necessary element of any education is the work of students not on educational projects, but on real projects and tasks. CERN is exactly the place where the tasks at the forefront of science and technology are generated, the place where the system for including young researchers in research and engineering research activity", – he explained.

According to Sukhikh, conducting the Trans-Siberian School at the base of Polytechnic University in Tomsk, together with CERN, is due to the coincidence of interests of both parties - TPU’s desire to actively join major international collaborations to gain new competencies by students and staff and CERN’s desire to involve the most talented and efficient students and young scientists to work on projects.

During the week, scientists working in large collaborations gave lectures to students "on the cutting edge of high energy physics in the context of new installations and projects". Students and young scientists, in turn, carried out practical tasks and reported on the results of their research.

"The most important thing for the school is that students from different cities and countries could get to know each other, find points of scientific contact, talk about their studies and not only listen to lectures, but also communicate with lecturers in an informal setting, among whom were, for example, Frédérick Bordry – the Director of CERN for Accelerators and Technology", – Sukhikh concluded.
