In order for the field of emerging nanoelectronics to continue growing exponentially worldwide and therefore lead to new commercial applications and to change the micro and nanoelectronics paradigm, it is necessary to educate new researchers who can work across traditional disciplines. The EU funded nanoICT project establishes a broad array of specialised training activities to provide mainly students with interdisciplinary competences in Nanotechnology and more specifically "nano-scale ICT devices & systems" (Emerging Nanoelectronics).
nanoICT School on Nanophotonics and Modelling Issues for ICT Celebrated in San Sebastian, Spain
Madrid, Spain | Posted on November 18th, 2009
The main training activity within nanoICT was a post-graduate winter school on "ICT nanoscale devices" research domains that took place at CIC nanoGUNE Research Center, in San Sebastian (Spain): October 26-30, 2009 - organised by the Phantoms Foundation, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC),Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) and CIC nanoGUNE and in collaboration with the nanoICT Coordination Action.
Two schools of 2 days duration were organized on NanoOptics-NanoPhotonics (35 participants) and NanoModeling (26 participants). Student presented their contribution to this school during the poster sessions.
Such an initiative will generate a new generation of high-skilled interdisciplinary scientists, indispensable to the sustainability of European excellence in the topic considered, but also educate the current working force.
During this school, an open symposium also took place (66 participants). The symposium programme was composed of international representative's presentations and invited talks on scientific research highlights of NanoICT topics.
