The school is a part of the Centre for Nuclear Theory (CNT) activities at VECC. The course content of the school has been classified into five major topics which will be taught by eminent scientists in the fields. It is planned to have three classes per day, the rest of the time will be for discussion and tutorials. Students and young researchers will have the opportunity to present their work. We also plan to invite few of the eminent Indian scientists for evening lectures.
