Advanced Schools present the cutting edge of research to young academics, who learn about the most recent developments in their fields from renowned experts. The annual Advanced School in Physics, established in 1982, offers lectures, poster sessions and tutorials on theoretical and empirical work. Schools rotate between examination of quantum theory and astronomy.

The Nobel laureate, Professor David Gross, is the School’s General Director.
