 ESONN'2024 Programme

pres and poster

Our 2-week course combines

> Lectures

> Practicals

> Seminars

> Participants presentations & Poster session

> Social programme

> NB: about University credits (ECTS)





Courses cover the fundamentals of selected areas chosen as important aspects of Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies in Physics, Biology or Chemistry.

Each lecture course consisting of 2 or 3 slots, will be given in English and delivered by scientists from European universities and research centers.

ESONN'2024 LECTURERS are presented HERE




On Wednesday 28 August, 2024

Me, My project, My dream: All participants along with ESONN Organising Committee members will present two slides introducing freely who they are, their background and their research activity.



On Wednesday 28 August, 2024

Poster session: Participants also bring a poster on their current research work. They will present it during a poster session and discuss their work with other attendees, ESONN lecturers and organizing committee members during an informal meeting.



PRACTICALS in Grenoble.

On Friday 30 August and From 3 September to 6 September, 2024.


Significant part of the formation is devoted to practicals, which are held in clean-room facilities at the Inter-university Centre for MicroElectronics (CIME - Grenoble) and in different research laboratories of the scientific Polygon in Grenoble.

Praticals in clean-rooms facilities are devoted to the use of the basic tools for micro-fabrication and characterization of micro-objects (micro-circuits, micro-systems...).

The technologies which are more specific are adressed through lab practicals proposed by scientists and engineers are on their ongoing research activities at the leading edge of scientific and technological developments.

See ESONN'2024 list of practicals HERE



Seminars will be held in Grenoble (place to be confirmed) during days of practical work, from 17:30 to 18:30:

  • Welcome official cocktail on Monday August 26, 2024.

  • Workshop with Nathanne ROST and Raphaël LEVY on Saturday August 31, 2024 will be organised in a nice place of Grenoble or around and followed by a sightseeing time. More information soon.

  • Farewell dinner in a restaurant on Friday 6 September, 2024.


University CREDITS (ECTS)

Administratively, ESONN is organised by Univ. Grenoble Alpes. However, we do not not deliver an official university diploma, which would require a student registration with the University.

Nevertheless, ESONN'2023 is a two-week school, with more than 30h of lectures 

and more than 40h of practical works.

The participation at ESONN can be recognized as: 6 ECTS by the University where the PhD participant is registered.


A certificate of participation indicating the number of training hours is delivered  at the end of the course to participants attended all lectures and selected practicals, so that these credits can be obtained.
