It is an important element towards a vivid Baltic science and innovation area to harness the potential of the next generation of researchers and to fully exploit the rich scientific infrastructure in the future.

The RÅC International Summer School (like previous RACIRI events) 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.

Program structure, lectures and topics of the RÅC International Summer School 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 today’s and tomorrow’s challenges and key barriers in materials sciences.

The RÅC International Summer School is intended to be particularly attractive for senior master students in the final research phase of their study programs (master, diploma), PhD and doctoral students, as well as young postdocs, using X-rays and neutrons for their research.
