Summer and Winter Schools

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

ECCM Graduate School 2023

The ECCM Graduate School will take place in Noordwijk, 13-16 June 2023

The scope of the ECCM Graduate School 2023¬†is ‚ÄúElectrochemistry for green energy and material transition‚ÄĚ, which captures their aim to bring together experts from academia and industry, and discusse the pivotal role of electrochemical processes for a sustainable society.¬†The ECCM Graduate School 2023 is intended for young academic researchers and scientists from industry, and strives for a balanced mix of participants.

You can pre-register here before Friday 31 March 2023 - you will be notified about your participation before 15 April 2023.

All information can be found on the website, including the preliminary programme with this line-up of speakers:

Han-sur-Lesse Winterschool
Physical Chemistry

The next Han-sur-Lesse Winterschool will take place from 5 - 9June 2023.
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.
