GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, Germany operates a unique large-scale accelerator for heavy ions. Researchers from around the world use this facility for experiments that help them make fascinating discoveries in basic research. In addition, they continually develop new and impressive applications. Currently the international accelerator facility FAIR, one of the largest research projects worldwide, is being built at GSI. At FAIR, matter that usually only exists in the depth of space will be produced in a lab for research. Scientists from all over the world will be able to gain new insights into the structure of matter and the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to the present.
The GET_INvolved programme provides international students and early stage researchers with opportunities to perform internships, traineeships and early-stage research experience in order to get involved in the international FAIR acclerator project while receiving scientific and technical training.
The blog Internship and Research Stay: GET_INvolved programme aims to portrait the students young researchers at their stay with GSI and FAIR in Darmstadt to show how what projects they are working on and what plans for the future they have.
