Our 2-week ONLINE course combines:
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.
The lectures will take place at the Maison des Magistères, Polygone Scientifique, Grenoble.

PRACTICALS - This year, due to the covid context, practicals will be organised online.
Half 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 to the , are adressed through laboratories works.
Practicals in laboratories provide experience on more specific nano-fabrication (e-beam lithography, innovative soft lithographies…). The lab practicals proposed by scientists and engineers are on their ongoing research activities at the leading edge of scientific and technological developments.
Me, My project, My dream: All participants along with ESONN Orgainising Committee members will present two slides introducing freely who they are, their background and their research activity.
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'2020 is a two week school, with ~70 hours of 'contact' hours (remotly) including: lectures (54h), tutorials and practicals (16), visits and group work. We estimate that following and preparing the course requires more than 30 hours of personal work, i.e. the total number of study hours is around 100h
Since one ECTS corresponds to 25 to 30h of work including personal work, this means that the full ESONN school can be recognized as 4 ECTS by the University where the PhD participant is registered.
A certificate indicating the number of training hours can be delivered at the end of the course to participants attended all lectures and selected practicals, so that these credits can be obtained.
(POSTER SESSION - not applicable in 2020)
Poster session: Participants also bring a poster on their current research work. They will present it during a poster session organized in the beginning of the school and discuss their work with other attendees, ESONN lecturers and organizing committee members during an informal meeting in the hall of the Maison des Magistères.
The posters are exhibited from the beginning to the end of ESONN.
SOCIAL PROGRAMME - not applicable in 2020
Welcome buffet dinner
Official opening cocktail
Touristic trip (Cité du chocolat at Tournon sur Rhône and visit of Pont en Royans)
Wine and cheese party
