This is the blog of the AMVA4NewPhysics project, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) financed by the H2020 program of the European Commission.
With its more than 50 participants working at universities, research institutes and companies in 11 different countries, AMVA4NewPhysics aims at developing advanced tools for statistical analyses, both in the field of High Energy Particle Physics as well as for industrial applications.
Most of the researchers involved in the network work on the ATLAS or CMS experiment at CERN, the two experiments that in 2012 succeeded in detecting for the first time the Higgs boson.
In the next four years, AMVA4NewPhysics will train a pool of early-stage researchers in particle physics and advanced statistical methods, to study data produced by the Large Hadron Collider experiments to search for new physics and analyze the detailed properties of the Higgs boson.
This blog will accompany the network members, in particular the younger researchers, over the entire duration of this new experience, giving them a chance to share with you whatever comes to mind: work in research, details of analyses, training opportunities, experiences of living abroad or just the ups and downs of life itself.
