Post-Graduate Studies & Curriculum Development
CPPL coordinates the PLAPA Postgraduate Masters Programm, co-founded by the EU Programm Curriculum Development in partnership with:

  1. Imperial College London, UK
  2. Technical University Madrid, ES
  3. University of Bordeaux – Science & Technology, FR
  4. Queen’s University of Belfast, UK
  5. Institut National des Sciences et Techniques Nucleaires INSTN, FR
  6. Czech Technical University Prague, CZ
  7. University of Milano – Bicocca, IT

CPPL is providing the knowledge acquired from Research to Postgraduate students, in cooperation with National and International Universities under Doctoral and Master Thesis. The main objective of the two years training program is to prepare high quality scientists & engineers in the field of laser produced plasmas, laser physics and laser fusion. Courses focus at professional training for plasma research in the academic or the private sector: plasma industry, optoelectronics, microelectronics, material processing, fusion engineering and relevant leading edge laser innovations.

Lifelong Learning Intense Programms

HIPOLIN
CPPL is organizing advanced series of Schools of Physics, focused on the field of of high power laser light interaction with matter. “HIPOLIN” took place in the city of Rethymno, Crete for two consecutive years in 2013 and 2014, for two weeks in summer. The project was co-founded by the European Programme Erasmus and CPPL was the coordinator with the cooperation with the following universities: Imperial College of London-UK, University of York-UK, Queens University, Belfast-UK, University of Bordeaux 1-FR, Ecole Polytechnique-FR, Czech Technical University in Prague-CZ, University of Milano–Bicocca-IT, Sapienza University of Rome-IT, Technical University of Madrid-ES, University of Bern-AT, Military University of Technology in Warsaw-PL, University of Ioannina-GR, Democritus University of Thrace-GR, Technical University of Crete-GR.

The program provided participants from Greece and Europe (but also from outside Europe), with advanced  in the field of laser matter interactions, plasma science, optoelectronics, electronics, laser technology and laser driven fusion science & technology. The syllabus of the course offered a complete introduction, for undergraduate students and first year research students, in the topic of Intense Laser – Matter interactions. The I.P. attempted to fill the gap in the curriculum of the standard educational programmes of the participating Universities at this new technology.

APPEPLA
CPPL is organizing advanced series of Schools of Physics, focused on the fields of Optoelectronics and Plasma Science. “APPEPLA” took place in the city of Rethymno, Crete from the 28th of June until the 8th of July 2010. The project was co-founded by the European Programme Erasmus and was organized by CPPL with the cooperation with the following universities: Imperial College of London-UK, University of York-UK, Queens University, Belfast-UK, University of Bordeaux 1-FR, Technical University of Lisboa-PT, Czech Technical University in Prague-CZ,University of Milano–Bicocca-IT, Technical University of Madrid-ES

The program provided participants from Greece and Europe (but also from outside Europe in subsequent phases), with advanced knowledge in the field of electronic applications and with a particular focus on optoelectronics in Physics and Plasma Technology. The training of highly educated scientists and engineers in Laser Plasma Physics and Technology is a key point for bringing fusion into society and at the same time giving the opportunity for new scientists to enter the exciting field of laser matter interactions. The I.P. attempts to fill the gap in the curriculum of the standard educational programmes of the participating Universities at this new technology. The scientific topics cover the ares of:

  • Applications of modern electronics in Plasma Science & Technology
  • X-ray production by discharged devices and applications in Plasma diagnostics
  • Plasma Physics Principles for Laser Driven Fusion
  • Optoelectronic technologies for the development of laser infrastructures for laser fusion applications
  • Energy production in indusrial scale by Laser Driven Fusion

 

OREA
Under the European Erasmus program and from the 5th to the 16th of July 2010, the international specialized Intensive Program “An Introduction of Organic Electronics and Applications” (OREA) on organic electronics and their applications, took place at Chania, Crete, with scientific coordinator, Lecturer Dr. Petrides Kostantinos and the co-operation of the European institutions: Oxford University-UK, Imperial College of London-UK, St-Andrews University-UK Linkoping University-SWE, University of Cyprus-CY and the Technological University of Cyprus-CY. Thematic attributes:

  • Technology of Organic Materials
  • Electronic and Optical devices based on organic materials
  • Applications of Organic Electronics
  • Manufacturing and processing methods of organic semiconductors

This  I.P. offers an introduction to the technology of organic electronics and applications and fills the gap in the curriculum of the standard educational programmes. The above thematic sessions are covered theoretically and practically through lab demonstrations by experienced lecturers from the participating Universities. OREA aims to:

  • expertise the participants in the field of organic electronics and applications
  • be adopted from the undergraduate educational programs of the participating Universities
  • be used as a guide in the organisation of a joint MSc course in the frame of the Erasmus – Mundus program by the participating institutes
  • the development of modern educational and training methods.
