Physics Without Frontiers

Worldwide physics outreach



Tunisia has recently shown great interest in getting involved with particle physics research, however universties often lack the courses students need to go into the area of research. A Physics Without Frontiers university course was organsied in 2016 in particle physics to master and PhD students at University of Tunis El Manar


The course was one month long taught remotely by Mario Campanelli from UCL, UK, with a series of lectures in person. Students were highly eneaged and motivated, and one student has gone onto a PhD in particle physics. Further activities are envised to support their interest.
