The school is open to graduate students, young researchers, postdocs, engineers, scientists from academic and industrial communities, etc. and will be devoted to growth techniques, to characterisation methods with selected focus on neutron scattering, microscopy and time-resolved spectroscopy, and to data management methods for compliance with FAIR criteria and EOSC goals.
There will also be guided visits to all the research infrastructures from the Trieste node available for transnational access (Elettra Synchrotron, FERMI-Free electron laser, Radiation, specific labs at IOM-CNR (Istituto Officina dei Materiali), Supercomputer at SISSA(International School for Advanced Studies)). inally, scheduled poster sessions will take place within the school.
