Summer School "Basic Aerosol Science" 2022, Vienna


10–16 July 2022


The summer school "Basic Aerosol Science" offers a broad education in basic principles and techniques of aerosol science. The main focus is on aerosol physics, but other fields such as aerosol chemistry and applications of aerosol science for e.g. issues of human health are also covered. The teachers of this summer school are leading European experts in the field of aerosol science.


The summer school is targeting international graduate students and early post‐doctoral researchers, as well as persons who work in the field of aerosol science.


The students participating in this summer school will acquire an excellent knowledge of the basics of aerosol science needed to understand and critically review aerosol processes and their interaction with the environment. They can immediately implement their knowledge in research projects of their institutions, act as decision makers in solving air pollution problems or contribute to regulatory processes and setting of standards.
