The call for RAC2022 Röntgen-Ångström International Summer School 2022 (Röntgen-Ångström-Cluster) covers up to 20 places for junior researchers active in Sweden. Successful applicants receive a scholarship that covers the cost of food and lodging.

One of the primary aims of the summer school, which will be held at Varbergs Kusthotell, is to strengthen the scientific knowledge base in the next generation of researchers, not least as new infrastructures for research, such as ESS, MAX IV and XFEL, are starting up.

The summer school, which used to be called ‘RACIRI’, is now arranged for the eighth time in a row, and has previously had around 100 participants each year, from Sweden, Germany and Russia. This year, the participants are from Sweden and Germany only.
