ESONN European School On Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies
ESONN is a european training session at the PhD level , devoted to Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, with a both theoretical and practical content organized by University Grenoble Alpes and Grenoble INP-UGA, with CNRS and CEA.
Professor at Univ. Grenoble Alpes
Head of Theory and Modeling Group, CEA Grenoble, France
Graduate students, postdoctoral and junior scientists coming from all around the world and working in the fields dealing with Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies.
ESONN’2023 (20th edition) is a two-week summer school aimed at providing training for graduate students, postdoctoral and junior scientists coming from all around the world and working in the fields dealing with Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies.
This 2023 edition of the school is comprised of academic lectures and seminars and also practical courses in Grenoble, all delivered by leading experts covering different aspects on elaboration, characterization and functionalities of nano-objects.
ESONN program is endowed with two key points.
The first one is interdisciplinarity, since research in Nanosciences demands a combination of various skills in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
The second point emphasises the role of laboratory courses. Very often, summer schools do not offer this opportunity of fundamental importance both for basic science and for applications. ESONN practicals provide a unique opportunity to address a complete set of aspects, such as nanofabrication, nano-elaboration, techniques of nano-measurements, nano-characterization and the physical principles behind them.
The programme is designed in two parallel sessions to highlight the fundamental and technological advances in two fields of research:
SESSION A: Quantum electronics and technologies
SESSION B: Nanophysics and chemistry - synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials for biological and medical applications.
Both sessions will run in parallel and will share common lectures and seminars followed by the week of practical work, as interdisciplinary studies is a clear objective of the school.
The aim of this training is to offer young researchers a structured view of the principles involved in the elaboration and in the functioning of nano-structures, nano-components and nano-machines.
At ESONN, students from various universities spend two weeks together, participating in an intensive and unique learning experience, thus forming long-lasting friendships that will promote their work beyond the PhD.
EUR 1500: Students from academic laboratories and Participants from private company and laboratory.
EUR 900: Without accommodation: Students from academic laboratories and Participants from private company and laboratory.
Each year, a few grants are allocated by ESONN, depending on the school budget, partners supports and applicants status.
