• Other information:
HIL is involved in teaching (about 10 bachelor-, master-, PhD- theses/year). It organizes annually the “Workshop on the Acceleration and Applications of Heavy Ions”, intended for young students from Polish universities. Every second year, together with the Faculty of Physics of the University of Warsaw and the National Centre for Nuclear Research, HIL organizes the Mazurian Lakes Conference on Physics (see Acta Physica Polonica B 47, 573 (2016)).
