We are pleased to invite you to attend the 12nd Central European Training School on Neutron Techniques (CETS2018) to be hosted by Budapest Neutron Centre, at KFKI Campus, Budapest on the 6-11 May 2018. 

CETS gives insight into neutron research methods and their application in studying the structure and dynamics of condensed matter. Theoretical training and practical work together with a poster section gives good opportunity for the participants to connect their own research with neutrons. PhD students, students and newcomers in this field are welcome.

Application deadline: 15 March 2018

RESEARCH and BUSINESS (R2B) meeting, in the frame of the ACCELERATE project

at the Charles University in Prague, on 15-16 February 2018

The aim is to bring together researchers and industry experts for a two-day conference with the objective of sharing knowledge in the field of nanotechnology, discussing its innovative applications in different sectors (such as ICT, health, energy and more) and exploring diverse collaboration opportunities between research organisations and companies. The goal is to have more people learning about the industrial applications of nanotechnology.
