Institut de Biologie StructuraleGrenoble / France

Hercules European School - 28 fabruary to 01 April 2022 - 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). Neutron and X-ray science is integrated with complementary techniques like (but not only) optical and electron microscopy, NMR, optical and THz spectroscopy. It includes lectures, practicals and tutorials, visits of Large Facilities (ALBA in Barcelona, KIT in Karlsruhe, DESY and European XFEL in Hamburg, Elettra and FERMI in Trieste, ESRF and ILL in Grenoble, SOLEIL in Paris-Saclay, and PSI in Villigen) and a poster session. The language of the course is English.
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).
See the programme of this year for more information.

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

G. SCHIRÒ (IBS/DYNAMOP) is deputy director of the HERCULES school for the biology session and many IBS scientists give lectures and tutorials.
