Summer and Winter Schools

This is an overview of Summer and Winter Schools in the Netherlands within the field of materials science.

Han-sur-Lesse Winterschool
Physical Chemistry

The next Han-sur-Lesse Winterschool will take place from 7 - 11 February 2022.
Max. 40 participants - Register here!

The Han-sur-Lesse winterschool for physical chemistry has a long tradition to train PhD/PostDoc students of the Netherlands in the basics of static and dynamical aspects of Colloidal, Soft matter, Biophysics, Material science theory and applications. Every year at the end of January or early February up to 35 students come to the Belgian Ardennes town of Han-sur-Lesse to learn from distinguished senior scientists from across Dutch universities such as Technical University Delft, University of Amsterdam, Free University of Amsterdam, University of Utrecht, Twente University, Technical University Eindhoven, Leiden University, and Wageningen University.A series of lectures with a common theme is presented with alternating emphasis on Equilibrium  and Dynamical aspects. Because of this alternating selection of topics we encourage all PhD students to enroll in two consecutive year. Topics vary, but typically one can expect to learn about: statistical thermodynamics, computer simulations, scattering techniques, wetting phenomena, colloid assemblies, liquid crystals, (non-equilibrium) thermodynamics, polymer theory, rheology, forces in biology. We expect that the applicants have an MSc- entry level in physical chemistry or comparable study.eywords that characterize this school are: state of the art lectures; problem solving; personal coaching; relaxed atmosphere, nature hikes, excellent food (also for vegetarians), socializing drinks, organized transportation from/to Utrecht central station.
