Extraordinary Nanomaterials for a new Megaworld

General description

Did you know that materials’ behavior depends on interactions in a length scale 3-4 orders of magnitude smaller than the thickness of a single human hair? Did you ever want to tweak them and fabricate “su misura” materials with magnificent tailored needs?

To make bigger, better and stronger structures for a new megaworld, engineers look the opposite way: towards the nanoworld.

So, if you wish to learn first hand about the materials that will form our future, from the people that are producing and researching them and spend 10 unforgettable days this July in Patras, don’t be shy, just apply to our awesome BEST Course in Summer!

Right next to the sea, you will also enjoy an amazing greek summer and traditional food and spend some “halara” time with students from all over Europe.

Patras is waiting for you… Don’t you want to give it a try?!
