Hercules course - March 18 to April 19, 2019 - Grenoble

This one month course, coordinated by the Université Grenoble Alpes, is designed to provide training for students, postdoctoral and senior scientists from European and non-European universities and laboratories, in the field of Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for condensed matter studies (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Geosciences, Industrial applications). It includes lectures, practicals and tutorials, visits of Large Facilities and a poster session.
The course is held in Grenoble at the Polygone Scientifique Louis Néel. This is close to partner institutions where practicals and tutorials will take place (EMBL, ESRF, IBS, ILL, CEA, CNRS).
A special seven days programme is included , in a partner institution among European Large instruments. In 2019, due to the long ESRF shutdown, two weeks (out of the five of the school) will be spent in two different partner institutions among ALBA, KIT, DESY, Elettra & Fermi, Swiss Light Source, SOLEIL.

The school includes a common part and two parallel sessions :
 Biomolecular, soft condensed matter structure & dynamics
 Physics and chemistry of condensed matter

F.Gabel (IBS/ELMA) is co-director of the HERCULES school for the biology session and many IBS scientists give lectures and tutorials.
