RACIRI Summer School 2017 in Ronneby, Sweden, 19-26 August 2017:  Grand Challenges and Opportunities with the Best X-ray and Neutron Sources

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.
