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.
