RESCUE consortium organizes 8th BELAS "Biannual European – Latin American Summer School on Design, Test and Reliability" on June 20-22, 2018 in Tallinn, Estonia.

We do not want to miss a single summer! BELAS is organized twice a year during the summers in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Distinguished speakers from Latin America and Europe will share their knowledge with PhD students, engineers and researchers. Participants are invited to present their research at the PhD Forum. This time we will celebrate the 5th anniversary of BELAS.

Participation is free of charge for a limited number of attendees.  All expenses of the summer school are covered by the sponsors, however, the participants are still responsible to pay for their travel and accommodation.
