September 2 - September 29

Event Navigation

The ESRF/ILL International Student Summer Programme on X-Ray and Neutron Science will be a four-week experimental project embedded in a research group of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) or Institute Laue-Langevin (ILL), together with a series of introductory lectures on the principles and applications of X-ray and neutron science (magnetism, materials science, soft matter, structural biology, imaging, etc.).

Undergraduate students from a University of a Member Country (or Scientific Associate Country) of ESRF or ILL are eligible to the Summer Programme. The Summer Programme will be held in English; participants are expected to be fluent in written and spoken English. The number of participants is limited to about 20. All selected participants will receive a financial support and free accommodation in Grenoble.
