The NMDB consortium organized a training course on Cosmic Rays & Neutron Monitors entitled: 'Cosmic Rays and Neutron Monitors - a training course in science and applications', from September 14 to 19, 2009. The training course was hosted by the Physics Department of the National & Kapodistrain University of Athens, at Athens, Greece. This course was designed for students, post docs, researchers and engineers interested by a broad range of applications of cosmic rays, from astrophysics of energetic particles to their impact on the Earth.

  • A total of 55 participants from 16 countries attended the training course.
  • The scientific program included high quality lectures by distinguished scientists. The total number of the lectures was 14. Questions on every lecture were distributed to the audience and the answers were evaluated by the lectures.
