Representatives from ISSP UL laboratories took part in RACIRI Summer School 2017 “Grand Challenges and Opportunities with the Best X-ray and Neutron Sources” in Ronneby and Lund, Sweden from August 19 to 26.
The RACIRI Summer School is a joint initiative by Sweden, Russia and Germany embedded in the collaborative frameworks of the Röntgen-Angström-Cluster (RAC) and the Ioffe-Röntgen-Institute (IRI). Partnering organizing institutions are NRC "Kurchatov Institute" in Russia, DESY in Germany and the Swedish Research Council Vetenskapsrådet.
The RACIRI Summer School strives for strengthening the scientific knowledge base of young researchers in advanced materials design with a strong connection to the excellent research infrastructures in the region and to contribute to the necessary interdisciplinary literacy in relevant scientific fields and disciplines. The program structure, lectures and topics of the RACIRI Summer Schools are designed to improve the fundamental understanding in advanced materials design rather than focusing on plain experimental methods and techniques. This will enable young researchers to better tackle todays and tomorrow’s challenges and key barriers in materials sciences.
