Event Name

HERCULES. Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation for Science

Start Date 23rd Feb 2014
End Date 26th Mar 2014

Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation for Science

This school provides 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, tutorials, and visits of Large Facilities.

The ~4-week school is a yearly event, established in 1991.


Since its first session, in 1991, HERCULES has displayed a number of features that differentiate these courses from the rest: i.e. simultaneous training in neutron and synchrotron radiation science for about 75 participants over several weeks, multidisciplinarity, lectures and tutorials given by highly qualified international specialists, and a substantial fraction of the programme devoted to practical sessions carried out on cutting edge instruments, at European Large Facilities partner institutes.
