Given that the development of the situation with regard to COVID-19 is difficult to predict for the months to come, and that health and safety of participants, lecturers and all others involved are our highest priority, we have decided with a heavy heart to cancel the Astroparticle School for 2020. We expect to be back next year and hope to welcome you then in Obertrubach-Bärnfels.

The first School for Astroparticle Physics was organised in 2004. Since then, it takes place each October. It primarily addresses graduate and PhD students from all fields of experimental and theoretical astroparticle physics.

The School offers the participants education in a wide range of topics from astrophysics, particle physics and cosmology, as well as in-depth coverage of topical developments in astroparticle physics. A further goal of the school is to stimulate contacts between participants and lecturers to strengthen long-term cooperation and synergy effects in the community of astroparticle physicists.

The School is supported by the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg through the Erlangen Centre for Astroparticle Physics (ECAP) and by the Helmholtz Alliance for Astroparticle Physics (HAP).
