The course was intended for individuals who wish to expand their knowledge in the field of nano-scale materials and nanoanalysis. The subjects covered in this course extended from fundamentals of materials science and analysis to the current nanotechnologies and challenges in industry. Chairman of the seminar was Prof. Dr. Ehrenfried Zschech, Dresden Fraunhofer Cluster Nanoanalysis, Germany. For more information see the web page of the course.
“All the presentations fitted very well with the scope of the workshop, so I would recommend it to anyone interested in this field. I particularly enjoyed one of the lab sessions: there were a range of options proposed, so it was possible to choose depending on one’s area of interest. Many tricks of the trade were discussed with both an academic scientist and an engineer from the industry.”
Dr. Marianne Guichenuy, Quality Management Methods, Robert Bosch Semiconductor Manufacturing Dresden GmbH, Dresden, Germany
“The European Advanced Training Course “Nano-scale Materials” was well organized and very enriching and now I am feeling more confident on a vast number of techniques of nano-scale characterization. It was an opportunity to see the "bridge" between universities and companies, the mission of Fraunhofer was well demonstrated. On the other hand, with the dinners, you provided a really good environment and strong laughs!“
