About RACIRI Summer Schools

RACIRI Summer Schools offer a unique training for young researchers in materials and life science, who utilize neutrons and X-rays. Their general theme is “Advanced Materials Design at X-ray and Neutron Facilities”.

RACIRI Summer Schools address mainly PhD students, master (diploma) students in their final research year, and young postdoctoral researchers from institutions predominantly of the three partner countries.

It is one of the main goals of RACIRI Summer Schools to strengthen the scientific knowledge base of the next generation of researchers in advanced materials research and to contribute to the necessary interdisciplinary literacy in relevant scientific fields and disciplines. The program structure, the addressed topics and the lectures are designed to improve a fundamental understanding rather than just focus on plain experimental methods and techniques. In addition, structure and program of the summer schools emphasize a stimulating learning environment with sufficient time for social & cultural activities among the students. Internationally renowned scientists and experts from the relevant fields will be invited as lecturers and tutors. Poster sessions and a Science Slam are part of each RACIRI Summer School. At the end of each lecture day, the students are offered Tutorials, where they can meet and discuss with each lecturer of the day separately in a relaxed atmosphere. These program parts should stimulate the interaction and a close dialogue between the generations.
