A set of training opportunities for staff and students of European and Israeli Universities in the area of photonic tools & techniques in Nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology is among the fastest growing fields in STEM Sciences. iPEN project (Innovative Photonics Education in Nanotechnology) has as a primary objective to provide an education training program to young researchers (postgraduate, Research students) in the most common used photonic tools & techniques in a Nanotechnology Laboratory. iPEN project during its development will include the development of online & offline modules, the organization of intensive courses, that will foster the photonic learning skills of young researchers in the field of Nanotechnologies.
iPEN project consists from a multinational consortium, with partners from Greece, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, and Israel. All the partners have demonstrated a strong record in the fields of education and research in photonics and in various fields of nanotechnology.
A Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE) project running from September 2017 to August 2020.
