HERCULES 2018 - European School 28 Years of Neutron & Synchrotron Radiation Science

Start Date 25th Feb 2018
End Date 30th Mar 2018
Description HERCULES is a European course for PhD students and young researchers using Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation for applications in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Hard & Soft Condensed Matter.

The 1-month school includes lectures (60%), hands-on practicals and tutorials at partner institutes (Elettra and FERMI in Trieste, Italy; ESRF, ILL in Grenoble; Soleil and LLB in Paris-Saclay; PSI in Villigen, Switzerland) and Grenoble Laboratories (CEA, CNRS, EMBL, IBS). (*)
(*)  also, participation of DESY and the European XFEL to be confirmed for 2018 due to scheduled down-time.

The school  includes a common part and two parallel sessions:
  • Biomolecular, soft condensed matter structure & dynamics
  • Physics and chemistry of condensed matter
Why join Hercules ?
  • to learn new techniques using neutron and synchrotron radiation
  • to expand your theoretical and practical knowledge, not only for your present research but for your scientific career
  • to experiment these techniques on world-class instruments & beamlines
  • to build a network of relations with fellow young researchers and experienced teachers from all around the World
A limited number of bursaries will be available either to reduce registration fees or cover travel costs.
Location Grenoble (and Hamburg, Trieste, Paris-Saclay, and Villigen)
