August 29 - September 9, 2023
Lectures, seminars, practical work, poster session, round table, social events, anniversary day, touristic day...
The programme is designed in two parallel sessions to highlight the fundamental and technological advances in two fields of research: SESSION A: Quantum electronics and technologies
SESSION B: Nanophysics and chemistry - synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials for biological and medical applications.
Both sessions will run in parallel and will share common lectures and seminars followed by the week of practical work, as interdisciplinary studies is a clear objective of the school.
Eligible applicants to this school are:
Students enrolled in a doctoral program of a university
Postdoctoral and junior scientists from academic or industrial laboratories
From 2004, ESONN it is

Direction and Committees
ESONN’2023 (20th edition) is a two-week summer school aimed at providing training for graduate students, postdoctoral and junior scientists coming from all around the world and working in the fields dealing with Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies.
This 2023 edition of the school is comprised of academic lectures and seminars and also practical courses in Grenoble, all delivered by leading experts covering different aspects on elaboration, characterization and functionalities of nano-objects.
Significant part of the program is devoted to the laboratory courses, providing unique hands-on learning opportunities.
On a world-wide level, Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies constitute an important, fast growing field both in academia and industry, due to considerable potential of their applications for economic development.
In this context, the European School On Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ESONN) is promoted for advanced learning based on leading-edge research. In collaboration with European universities and research centers, we propose annually a 2-week programme comprising both lectures and laboratory courses.
The aim of this training is to offer young researchers a structured view of the principles involved in the elaboration and in the functioning of nano-structures, nano-components and nano-machines.
At ESONN, students from various universities spend two weeks together, participating in an intensive and unique learning experience, thus forming long-lasting friendships that will promote their work beyond the PhD.
ESONN program is endowed with two key points.
The first one is interdisciplinarity, since research in Nanosciences demands a combination of various skills in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
The second point emphasises the role of laboratory courses. Very often, summer schools do not offer this opportunity of fundamental importance both for basic science and for applications. ESONN practicals provide a unique opportunity to address a complete set of aspects, such as nanofabrication, nano-elaboration, techniques of nano-measurements, nano-characterization and the physical principles behind them.
