The objective of the Erasmus Intensive Programme "Non-perturbative Quantum field theory" is to teach in a single coordinated course, classic non-perturbative quantum field theory techniques developed in the seventies and eighties in tandem with advanced AdS/CFT, the novel method for analyzing strongly coupled quantum field theories.

In this way students will be fluent in both types of techniques and the aim will be to use them both as tools in the non-perturbative study of quantum field theory and string theory.

The target group is advanced young researchers (master's, doctoral and postdoctoral) from European institutions (mostly) studying theoretical problems with strong coupling physics from various physics disciplines.

The main source of funding is from the Erasmus Intensive Programme administered in Greece by IKY.
