EuroSchool

ECMetAC is organizing on an annual basis the ECMetAC European School in Materials Science. Started in 2006 within the CMA network of excellence, the aim of the Euroschool is to provide a lecture-style background to young scientists, Phd students and graduate students in the field of crys­tal­log­ra­phy, chem­istry, ma­te­ri­al sci­ence or sol­id state physic, in particular the physics of metals and metallurgy. Lectures are given by experts coming from academia, research and industry. They provide lecture on a step by step basis, with tutorial organized so as to practice the notion learned. The tar­get­ed au­di­ence includes PhD stu­dents, young or ex­pe­ri­enced sci­en­tists work­ing in the field of crys­tal­log­ra­phy, chem­istry, ma­te­ri­al sci­ence or sol­id state physic, etc...The list of the EuroSchools is given below, along with the specific field taught. The last EuroSchool 2019 was organised jointly with the 4th International School on aperiodic crystals in Portbail, France.

EuroSchool 2019 in Portbail

  • Portbail France

The EuroSchool 2019 took place from 8th to 14th September 2019 in Normandy. The school entitled “4th International School on aperiodic Crystals” was organised jointly by the IUCR and the CNRS. The Euroschools organized by the ECMetAC Consortium are traditionally addressed to young scientists, postdocs, doctorants and students in such fields as condensed matter physics and chemistry, materials science, metallurgy and material engineering.

EuroSchool 2018 in Krakow

  • Krakow

The Euroschool 2018 was focused on complex materials converting energy (thermoelectrics, magnetocalorics, ...) from theoretical and experimental points of view, accounting for fundamental issues and applications, and including wide aspects of electron and phonon properties as well as their interactions in complex multiatom alloys.

  • Bayreuth, Germany

The "2nd International School on Aperiodic Crystals" took place at the University of Bayreuth in Bayreuth, Germany, from 7 through 12 April 2013. The School has been organized by the Commission on Aperiodic Crystals of the International Union of Cystallography (IUCr), with the support from the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS, "formation permanente"), the European C-MAC and the German Crystallographic Association (DGK).

EuroSchool 2012 in Dresden

  • Dresden

The EuroSchool addressed the timely topic of intermetallic compounds in catalysis. Intermetallic compounds play a major role on conventionally supported heterogeneous catalysts by being formed under reducing pre-treatment conditions or during reaction. In addition, they can form the basis for a knowledge-based approach in catalysis, enabling fast development and innovation.

EuroSchool 2011 in Toulouse

  • Toulouse

The purpose of the school was to give the basis of the crystallography and crystallo-chemistry allowing a better understanding of complex metallic alloys. A thorough introduction to the concepts of crystal chemistry and chemical bonding was given and followed by its application to CMA.
