====================================================================                                                HERCULES 2018 - European School                                2018 session:   25 February-30 March, 2018
                UPDATED DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: 25 October 2017====================================================================    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
====================================================================    Bursaries/reduced costs- A limited number of bursaries will be available either to reduce registration fees or cover travel costs.
