Summer school

The second academic year of the Master Mamaself will start with a summer school of two weeks, where both lectures and practicals (comprehensively corresponding to 7 ECTS) will offer an excellent introduction into the use of "Large Scale Facilities". The Mamaself Summerschool takes place at University of Montpellier

Master Mamaself Summerschool

The core of the lectures will all be given by the four scientists responsible of the Master in each of the four universities :

  • Ph. Rabiller,
  • W. Paulus,
  • C. Lamberti,
  • W. Petry,
  • W. Schmahl.

exhibiting a huge background in this area. Each year the core lectures will be supported by specific seminars given by other university colleagues and by researchers directly coming from national or European Large Scale Facilities centres.

There will also be a teaching contribution from scientists coming from outside Europe, India (IIT Madras), Japan (University of Kyoto, Institute of Materials Research, and Russia (Southern Federal University), Switzerland (Paul Scherrer Instute), USA (University of Connecticut, Universty Cornell, Kansas University) in order to show the perspectives in Non-European countries and to give a more globalized view of research activities and organisation outside European using "Large Scale Facilities".
See "Professors and experts" page

The summer school  will take place in September, before the "Materials science" lectures given at the different universities.

A further aim of the summer school is to bring together all the students participating to the program and to allow a maximum of personal exchange between the students, but also to propose already at this stage possible subjects of internships, in relation with "Large Scale Facilities" and the list of Master thesis (and corresponding supervisors) available for the second semester.
