CHERN’s main activities consist of Working Group meetings, Conferences, Short Term Scientific Missions and Training Schools. There are also annual meetings of our Management Committee and due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have organized the CHERN Online Series and Virtual Networking activities.

In addition, CHERN accepts applications for ITC Conference Grants on a rolling basis.

If you would like to take part in our activities, see how to join CHERN.

Meetings can be of different types, such as Management Committee meetings, working group meetings, workshops and conferences. Some of these may be open to the wider community and provide opportunities to enhance the CHERN’s visibility and impact. CHERN members will be invited to participate in the relevant meetings depending on their type of membership. 

CHERN members that want to initiate meetings should contact the Action’s Chair and Vice Chair.


Training schools offer intensive training of up to 15 days on a particular topic and take place at the home institution of one or more CHERN participants. Trainees are typically (but not exclusively) young researchers from across Europe. These schools may also cover relevant retraining as part of lifelong learning.

Contact the Training School Coordinator if you are interested in offering a training school proposal.

Short-term scientific missions (STSM) are exchange visits between researchers involved in CHERN. Their aim is to foster research collaboration and share new techniques that may not be available in a participant’s home institution. Calls for STSMs proposals will be disseminated via the working groups. Calls for STSM participation will be disseminated via the CHERN website, CHERN newsletter, the CHERN working groups and their wider networks.
