The ITER International School provided an exhilarating experience in the field of plasma physics! From June 26 to June 30, 2023, I had the privilege of attending this remarkable event held in Aix-en-Provence, France. The school was dedicated to the captivating realms of nuclear fusion, with a particular focus on EP Physics in Magnetized Plasmas. It brought together 160 participants from various backgrounds and locations worldwide.

Throughout the program, we were treated to captivating lectures, an awe- inspiring visit to the ITER site, and a delightful social dinner in the company of professors, organizers, and fellow participants. This was an extraordinary opportunity to forge connections with other students and discover numerous research opportunities and open study positions in the field. The school encompassed a broad range of subjects in EP physics, including EP sources (NBI, ICH), modeling of EP sources, diagnostics for energetic particles, EP instabilities, Kinetic-MHD hybrid simulations of energetic-particle-driven instabilities, experimental observations of EP transport and loss, control of EP-related instabilities, the physics of runaway electron observations, and modeling of runaway electrons.

Emphasizing the state-of-the-art advancements in the field, the ITER International School was jointly hosted by ITER, CNRS, Aix-Marseille University, in partnership with IAEA.

I would like to express my deep gratitude to Fusenet for providing me with this amazing opportunity to attend such an extraordinary event in such a captivating field of research.
