As a result of the ongoing sanitary crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Bordeaux announces the postponement of the 2020 edition of the Bordeaux Summer Schools until 2021. The current situation means that the program cannot be organized while respecting the health and safety of its participants, nor can it propose a high-quality educational environment, as initially promised. Additionally, many of the Bordeaux Summer School speakers are now participating in research and innovation programs that have been launched to fight the pandemic as well as its socio-economic effects. Such programs will be a priority for the University of Bordeaux in the coming months.
For those who have already applied to a Bordeaux Summer School, please check your email inbox for more information.
Please note that our summer school websites will be updated as soon as possible with further details regarding this postponement.
We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you in Bordeaux in 2021.
Soft Matter for Functional Materials #3: surface patterning and colloidal assembly
The SoFun’3 Summer School offers innovative and multidisciplinary training for researchers working in fields related to surface science and colloidal assembly.
Renowned and dynamic lecturers will share their expertise, from the fundamentals to state-of-the-art methods, techniques and strategies to design functional colloidal particles and guide their assembly on surfaces, forming materials with tailored properties.
The course is open to doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, academics and private actors in materials science.
This third edition of the SoFun Summer School is based on the success of two previous courses organized in Carcans (2015) and in Latresne (2018), each gathering between 50 and 60 international participants passionate about the emerging field of Soft Matter for Functional Materials.
