RACIRI Summer School 2016 in Repino, Russia, 21-28 August 2016: Convergent Science and Technology for Society

The RACIRI Summer School is a joint initiative by Russia, Sweden and Germany in the collaborative framework of the Röntgen-Angström-Cluster (RAC) and the Ioffe-Röntgen-Institute (IRI).

The novel format of the RACIRI Summer School is driven by scientific frontier themes and challenges in the field of materials sciences with a strong connection to the superb analytical potential at current and future research infrastructures (synchrotron radiation, X-rays and neutrons) in the Baltic region.

The RACIRI Summer School is held every year under a special focus theme. Its venue rotates annually among the three partnering countries.

The first RACIRI Summer School was organized 2013 in Petergof, Russia. Focus theme: "Soft Matter and Nano Composites".

The second RACIRI Summer School was held from 24-31 August 2014 in the Stockholm area, Sweden, under the focus theme "Imaging with X-rays and Neutrons in Life and Materials Sciences".

The third RACIRI Summer School was held during 22-29 August 2015 in Sellin, Island of Rügen, Germany. Its focus theme: "Time-resolved and In-situ Studies of Materials: Basics and Applications".

Currently, the fourth RACIRI Summer School is being prepared. RACIRI 2016 will take place in Repino near Saint Petersburg, during 21-28 August 2016. You will find more information on RACIRI 2016 soon on this website. This year´s focus theme: "Convergent Science and Technology for the Society".
