Courses cover the fundamentals of selected fields that were chosen as being important aspects of Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies in Physics, Biology or Chemistry.
Each lecture, consisting of several class times of 1h45 each, will be taught in english and, usually, by a single person.
The lectures are given in the Maison des Magistères, Polygone Scientifique, Grenoble.

Monitoring dynamics at the nanoscale level in biology using photonic microscopy
Half of the formation is devoted to praticals, which are held in clean-room facilities at the Inter-university Centre for MicroElectronics (CIME - Grenoble) and in different laboratories of the scientific areas of 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 to the nano-fabrication (e-beam lithography, innovative soft lithographies…), are adressed through laboratories works.
Practicals in laboratories are proposed by researchers on their current research and are thus at the leading edge of the international research.
PARTICIPANTS PRESENTATION AND POSTER SESSION
All the participants present two slides introducing their background and research activity to the others and to the ESONN Committee.
They also bring a poster on their research activity. A poster session is organized during the first days of the school.
The posters are exhibited from the beginning to the end of ESONN in order to permit to the participants to discuss with other students, with the lecturers and with the organizers, on their own field of research.
