Description
Common Trends in Cosmology and Particle Physics
is an Eötvös Graduate Course and Workshop in Physics.

The lecture series covered the latest developments at the interface of particle physics and cosmology and the most important astrophysical projects exploring the evolution of the Universe. The course consisted of a a four-day lecture series followed by a two-day workshop, open to doctoral students and young postdoctoral fellows. During the workshop, the participants had the opportunity to present their contributions.

Organising Committee:
Zsolt Frei (Eötvös University Budapest)
Wolfgang Kummer (TU Wien)
András Patkós (Eötvös University Budapest)
Dominik J. Schwarz (CERN)

Sponsored by Aktion Österreich-Ungarn, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Hungarian Research Fund (OTKA) and the Doctoral School of Eötvös University.
