One of the main goals of the course is to promote a lively interaction between the students and lecturers during the breaks, visits and lunchtime. In addition to lectures and laboratory visits there will be plenty of outdoor activities - including surfing!

PlasmaSurf is organized by Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear, a research unit of Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon.
