Final Activity Report Summary - CRYOCOURSE (Marie Curie Advanced Cryogenics Course)

The European intensive course on Cryophysics and Cryogenics, covered all aspects related to the science and technology of low temperatures. Advanced training in world leading low temperature laboratories has been offered to PhD students, post-docs and other young researchers and engineers from universities, research centres and industry. During the period 2007-2010, 5 events gathering 254 participants were organised with the support of the Marie Curie EU Programme:
2 Training Practical Courses ("CRYOCOURSEs") of 12 days each (Grenoble 2007, Helsinki 2009)
3 Training Conferences for Young Researchers (CRYOCONFERENCES) of 5 days each (Madrid 2008, Grenoble 2010, Kosice 2010) The theoretical and practical ("hands-on") courses covered the main topics of cryogenics, from the fundamental physics to the industrial applications.

CRYOCONFERENCES, on the other hand, provided young researchers with a unique training in science and techniques, developing their skills in conference presentations. Excellent young researchers and engineers interested in cryogenics and low temperature physics found in CRYOCOURSE the opportunity to learn about fundamental and industrial issues in Cryogenics in direct contact with the experts in the field, to meet with their peers in a favourable working environment, establishing strong links with the low temperatures community active in many different fields: condensed matter, nanoscience, material science, particle physics, astrophysics, cryogenic industry, accelerator and reactor engineering, large-scale neutron and X-ray facilities, space cryogenics, etc.

CRYOCOURSE also played an important role in disseminating advanced scientific and technological knowledge, in the spirit of the Marie Curie Programme. Detailed information can be found on the CRYOCOURSE Web site:
