The Terahertz Technologies & Applications Summer School (formerly known as the International Travelling Summer School – ITSS) was organized by one of the participating universities or institutes and took place in a different place every year since 1990. In 2020 the summer school was to take place at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), in The Netherlands, and organized by the Research Group Terahertz Photonic Systems of TU/e. We expected around 100 to 150 participants, however, due to the situation caused by COVID-19, the summer school was postponed. 

In 2021, the issue of the pandemic was not over but we didn’t want to let anyone wait and another year passes by. Thus we decided to hold the event online and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Summer School. Therefore we organized the event, for the first time, online, and since traveling is not permitted we appropriately renamed the summer school. 

This year, 2022, the school is coming back to the common format. During 11th-15th July CENTERA will organize THz Technology and Applications Summer School in Warshaw (Poland). The TTASS 2022 is organized in close cooperation with Eindhoven University of Technology, national and international companies.

The language of the Summer School is English, and the program consists of lectures presenting the newest achievements in Terahertz technologies and applications. The lectures will be followed by discussions and interactions among students, professors, and industry professionals. We will organize visits to companies, group challenges, diverse lab tours, social events, coffees, etc. 

We are looking forward to meeting you this summer! Join us for a week of exploration, learning and interesting interactions.
