GENERAL INFORMATION 
● 
The LASER IGNITION SUMMER SCHOOL 2017 is organized within HORIZON 2020 - THE FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME FOR RESEARCH AND INNOVATION 2014-2020. It is the first summer school of Workpackage 4 of the European project LASIG-TWIN 691688: LASER IGNITION - A TWINNING COLLABORATION FOR FRONTIER RESEARCH IN ECO-FRIENDLY FUEL-SAVING COMBUSTION (http://www.lasig-twin.eu/; http://ecs.inflpr.ro/Proiect%20LASIG-TWIN%20691688.html). The lecture program will be conducted by the experts within LASIG-TWIN, covering the value chain of the project from fundamental to applied research and applications. A limited number of external experts will be invited to give additional talks. This event will promote the laser ignition research activities at National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics - INFLPR as well as at European partners. It will provides an opportunity for Romanian and international students as well as for Romanian scientists to attend lectures given by experts and to gather with them for the exchange of ideas within their own or even adjacent fields. A social program will be organized to learn about local attractions.
