An important objective of MaNEP Switzerland is to offer networking and training opportunities to PhD students and postdocs. Schools are not only the place to learn and deepen scientific knowledge, it is also a unique opportunity to build and expand the scientific network. Since 2004, MaNEP is running a biannual school programme in Saas-Fee. Initially organized in summer, it became a winter school in 2009 when it also widened to foreign students and speakers.

The school aims at a broad introduction to contemporary topics in condensed matter physics. In MaNEP’s tradition, we anticipate a warm and interactive atmosphere between participants, lecturers and organizers.The school targets an audience at the doctoral and post-doctoral levels. A background in general condensed matter physics should be sufficient. All lectures are given in English.

The MaNEP Winter School 2022 was postponed due to covid-19.

I feel very lucky to be able to participate in the school. It was extremely useful to know the entire view about a particular important subject.
The subjects are very well chosen. Some are traditional subjects, some are hot topics. What a wonderful occasion for me! Thanks to the organizers!
