Summer schools with EuroTech

Summer schools organized by our doctoral candidates

The EuroTech Alliance (DTU, EPFL, TUM, TU/e, L’X and Technion) is funding selected summer/winter schools, organized by doctoral candidates from the EuroTech Universities, for their peers. The objective of this project is to enhance exchange between the EuroTech Universities.

The course should contain the following attributes:

  • Candidates acquire knowledge at the cutting edge of science & technology
  • Community building including exchanges between PhD candidates and faculty

In 2019, one EuroTech summer school will take place on the EPFL campus in September:

Open Science in Practice -- September 2-6, 2019, EPFL (VD)

‘Open’ is the new black. Everybody talks about open science. But what does it mean exactly? This summer school is for anyone interested in learning more about what academic research will look like in the future. We want to bring together established scientists and early career researchers to provide a stimulating, yet friendly, learning environment. No preliminary knowledge of open science is required! The course will take place over five days, with a large part of the program dedicated to workshops and tutorials. Instructors will present their experience and expertise on how you can adopt open science tools and best practice to your research more efficient, reproducible, visible and impactful. The course is open to all students and early career researchers. Anyone interested in learning more about the topic is stronly encourage to apply.

New Trends in Chiral Magnetism, 20-24 August 2018, EPFL (VD)

The summer school aims at providing a broad and in-depth view on chiral magnetism and timely research topics to students, considering e.g. chiral domain walls, spin spiral and spin cycloids, skyrmions, magnonic crystal properties and directional dichroism of microwaves. The school will address experimental and theoretical physics, experimental and computational material science, microengineering and electrical engineering.
