KA107 Erasmus+ facilitates the mobility of staff and students between partner Institutes for teaching and training purposes. The School of Physics, TCD has formed partnerships with Institutes in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. The project facilities collaborative a) research projects b) research-led teaching of postgraduate students and c) training of mobile research staff, undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The Applied Physics Research Group's participation in Erasmus+ began with a partnership with the Institute of Solid State Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Chernogolovka, Moscow in 2015. Our engagement has since expanded to include Nazarbayev University, Astana, Kazakhstan and Belarusian State University, Minsk, Belarus.


We collaborate with an extensive network of researchers, independently and through funded collaborations.
