Education and Outreach

 

Education

In RCAAM, during 2021 there are 4 postgraduate students, who are carrying out research in the frame of their PhD and Masters Theses under the supervision of members of our institute.

A course on "Nonlinear Dynamics" for Masters' students at the section of Astrophysics, Astronomy and Mechanics, of the Physics Dept. of the University of Athens is offered by Dr. P. A. Patsis.

Outreach

The researchers of RCAAM were invited during 2020 to give lectures in educational institutions and events for the public. They also wrote articles for the public while their interventions helped to disseminate the research results of the Center.
