Topical Advanced Summer School (TASS) joint with UK-Ukraine Meeting on Solar Physics and Space Science (UKU SPSS)

Topical Advanced Summer School will bring together leading UK and international researchers to lecture and tutor on their specialities to postgraduates and early career PDRAs.

IMPORTANT ! Funding is available, on a first-come first-served basis, for up to 10 STFC-supported PhD students.

A scientific programme of TASS is outlined below.
