General Information

 

We open our doors to the general public twice a year, on our open days, while guided tours are available for professional and educational visitors upon prior registration. Furthermore, we offer training courses to people with a serious interest in natural sciences.

 

Professional and educational visits:

Visitors for professional and educational purposes are welcome all year round, free of charge, subject to prior registration and appointment. For guided tours, we can accommodate groups of 10 to 25 people interested in natural sciences and in the research projects conducted at our Institute. Groups can participate in guided tours around the building, scientific lectures, on-site science lessons, and can visit our interactive visitor centre.

  • If you and your colleagues are interested in a professional visit, please contact us at this email address: visitorcentre@eli-alps.hu. Please specify your area of expertise, the planned date of your visit, the number of visitors expected and your telephone number so that we can call you back to discuss the details.
  • If you are interested in an educational visit for a group of students, please contact us at this email address: visitorcentre@eli-alps.hu. Please indicate the school you are coming from, the planned date of your visit, the expected number of visitors and your telephone number so that we can call you back to discuss the detailed programme. As some knowledge of science is necessary to understand the activities of our institute, we only organize educational visits for students over the age of 14.

 

Training courses:

Our research institute is also open to those who want to develop their skills in physics:

  • If you are a secondary school teacher of science, apply to our teacher training courses. For more information on our courses please click here.
  • If you are a secondary school student and would like to venture into the world of laser science and ultrafast processes, enrol to our summer camp. The next camp is scheduled for 24-28 June 2024.

 

Open days:

The doors of ELI ALPS are open to everyone twice a year, on the Friday closest to 16 May for our Day of Light programme and on the last Friday of September for the Researchers' Night event.

 

On these two days each year, we offer a full evening programme of guided visits, lectures and demonstrations at pop-up stands to showcase the research projects conducted at our Institute. Our programmes provide an exciting and interesting learning experience for primary school children, secondary school students, adults, lay people and those with a serious interest in science.

  • Our next Open Day linked to Researchers' Night event will be held on 27 September. More details will be published soon.

 

We look forward to seeing you!
