We would like to inform you that our collegue Peter Otrubcak was one of three successful applicants from the whole EU in Call for Applications for Knowledge/Staff Exchange programme organized by Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg and participated from 5th June to 9th June in Research Infrastructure Management Training.

The Knowledge/Staff Exchange focused on operating and managing large sustainable on-site research infrastructures and was fully funded by DESY Hamburg.

DESY Hamburg is one of the world’s leading accelerator centres. Researchers use the large-scale facilities at DESY to explore the microcosm in all its variety – from the interactions of tiny elementary particles and the behaviour of new types of nanomaterials to biomolecular processes that are essential to life.

The accelerators and detectors that DESY develops and builds are unique research tools. The facilities generate the world’s most intense X-ray light, accelerate particles to record energies and open completely new windows onto the universe.

That makes DESY not only a magnet for more than 3000 guest researchers from over 40 countries every year, but also a coveted partner for national and international cooperations. Committed young researchers find an exciting interdisciplinary setting at DESY. The research centre offers specialized training for a large number of professions. DESY cooperates with industry and business to promote new technologies that will benefit society and encourage innovations. This also benefits the metropolitan regions of the two DESY locations, Hamburg and Zeuthen near Berlin.
