Between the 25th and the 27th of August 2020 we will hold our annual Multimessenger School Summer Workshop. In order to comply with the security rules due to Covid-19 the meeting will be virtual. 



After a second round of applications for the school in December 2019, interviews to select future candidates were held in Berlin in February 2020. Among 11 candidates, 5 have been choosen by the selection committee as next PhD students of the School.



Kick-off of the School

The International Helmholtz-Weizmann Graduate School for Multimessenger Astronomy was opened on the 28th of October 2019 with a festive ceremony in Israel. The program, in which the Israeli Weizmann Institute of Science, the Humboldt University of Berlin and the University of Potsdam have joined forces with DESY, is funded by the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres with 1.8 million euros. The school will initially start with 17 doctoral students, eight of whom are currently at DESY and nine at the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot. More information here.
