Abstract

For the first time ever, a summer research programme was organised at ESO Garching. Seven students, enrolled in universities all around the world, were selected from more than 300 applicants. They each spent six weeks from June to August 2019 carrying out a scientific project under the supervision of teams of ESO Fellows and postdocs, while engaging in the scientific life of ESO. The students carried out research in different fields of astronomy, from comets to high-redshift galaxies and from pulsating stars to protoplanetary discs. In this report we present the programme and describe the main outcomes of the projects.
