21st edition of the European School On Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies

  • March 20, 2024

We are pleased to announce the 21st edition of the European School On Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies which will be held from August 25 to September 7, 2024 in Grenoble, France. The school proposes a rich program composed of lectures, seminars and practical work given by leading experts in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Two full weeks of training are organized in Grenoble.

Week 1: August 25 – August 31

  • Lectures

        One day of practical work

  • Poster session, presentation of participants, testimonies, round table and touristic time, Welcome Cocktail

Week 2:  September 2 –  September 7

  • One day of lectures
    Practical works
  • Seminars given by scientists from Grenoble research labs

FEES: 1700€ with hotel accommodation in Grenoble, 1000€ without.

2 weeks in Grenoble for the whole programme.


The program is designed in two parallel sessions to highlight the fundamental and technological advances in two fields of research:

Session A: Quantum Science & Technology

Session B: Nano Bio Sciences

Both sessions will run in parallel and will share interdisciplinary common lectures.

The practical work will take place partly at the Inter-university Centre for MicroElectronics (CIME) as well as in more than 20 different laboratories of our scientific partners (CEA, CNRS, IAB, IBS, ESRF…).
