Initiated by Prof. Noe (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), the summer schools in the field of applied superconductivity are now organized by ESAS. In 2017 one school on will take place in Lans-en-Vercors, France, close to Grenoble, June 25-30, 2017. It will be organised in “Le domaine des Girards” in the beautiful “Massif du Vercors”.

The school will cover all the aspects of superconductivity from physics to large scale applications (magnets, FCL, cables, rotating machines…) through materials, cryogenics instrumentation, electrical isolation and modelling. Technical visits will be organized on Friday afternoon. Several industrial speakers will highlight the industrial aspect of superconductivity with a market in constant growing.

This school was intended not only to provide a better understanding of superconductivity in general, but also to develop links and networking between the community especially the young one. All participants will present a poster, support for exchanges. The warm « Domaine des Girards » and a hike on the wonderful Vercors plateau followed by an evening in an Alpine restaurant will favour this. To maintain the essential conviviality the number of participants is limited.
