Between 11.Sep.2022 and 16.Sep.2022 I attended the IPP Summer University 2022 in Greifswald, Germany. This summer university focused on fusion plasma physics and it was held and organized by the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics. Students from all over Europe and also from other continents participated in this event, so it was a perfect opportunity to meet young physicists from all over the world. During these 5 days, we had a lot of lectures about fusion plasma physics. We started with basic plasma physics, MHD equations, and basic concepts of tokamaks and stellarators and in the end, we reached more difficult topics like transport and kinetic theory. We also had an excursion to the Peenemünde Historical Technical Museum, where we could learn a lot about the largest armaments centre in Europe. It was a fascinating and terrifying experience at the same time. For me, the most exciting point of the summer university was the Wendelstein 7-X tour. During my bachelor's years, I was working on this device and it was amazing to see it in real. During the summer university, I learned a lot from the lectures and also from the other participants and it was really nice to see so many people with the same interests as me.
