ESONN-European School On Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies, a three-week course to provide training for graduate students, postdoctoral and junior scientists from all around the world, in the field of Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies.Founded in 2004, LMGP is one of the organizers, represented by D. Delabouglise
HERCULES, a one month course to provide training for students, postdoctoral and senior scientists from all around the world in the field of Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for condensed matter studies (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Geosciences, Industrial applications). It includes lectures, practicals and tutorials, visits of Large Facilities... LMGP is widely associated in organization, practicals and teaching as well.
Technical training in TEM and SEM
Workshop on TEM sample preparations. Objectives : getting minimum theoretical and practical knowledge in sample preparation techniques for materials science. National training session organised on MINATEC-LMGP on a yearly basis by CNRS FORMATION Entreprises L. Rapenne (LMGP) in collaboration with Jeanne Ayache (LM2C). It is oriented to research and engineer training. Partnerships of FMNT, CMTC plateforms
SEM Formation. organised jointly with CMTC. Since 1977, CMTC provides basic to advanced training in all aspects of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Many joint training programmes have been carried out by CMTC and LMGP.
Introduction to sciences
LMGP is also dealing with introducing physics for kids from 3 to about 15 year old. The pedagogical and scientific approaches are very close to the concept of main à la pâte, where kids are actively involved in performing experiments, making suggestions, testing them through experiments, and discussing and presenting them. This project concerns about 30 students from the first year of the Engineer School PHELMA, 400 kids in 17 different classrooms in 5 schools near Grenoble, plus kids located at the Grenoble's hospital. These projects are coordinated by D. Bellet.N. B. : Finally it is important to note that in addition to the pool of G-INP staff, nearly 50% of the CNRS-LMGP researchers participate significantly in the PHELMA cursus.
