A unique experience right inside a
high-tech laboratory

These 2,5-day programs are dedicated to the topics of shock, impact and rapid dynamics. The unique feature of the Shock Physics Academy is that it offers both theoretical and practical courses. Walk through the doors of a laboratory equipped with outstanding test facilities and make the most of the knowledge and experience of recognized professionals.

2020 Program:
