Grenoble International Smart Engineering Summer School (GINSEN)
The Grenoble International Smart Engineering (GINSEN) summer school is offered to both undergraduate and graduate students by the Grenoble INP-UGA Institute of Engineering and Management. The curriculum, with its focus on smart energy and nanotechnology, includes lectures and lab work on state-of-the-art equipment.
GINSEN is open to French and international students; tuition discounts are available to students from some partner universities. The summer school takes place in June and July; and applications are accepted from December to mid-May.
Grenoble INP-UGA Institute of Engineering and Management also offers another summer school on bio-based materials and biomass transformation, in July (deadline for applications is May 1).
HERCULES School: Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for Science
HERCULES takes place every year in the spring and is coordinated by Grenoble Alpes University and the Grenoble INP-UGA Institute of Engineering and Management. PhD students, post-docs, and researchers receive an entire month’s worth of training in neutron and synchrotron radiation for condensed matter studies in disciplines such as biology, chemistry, materials science, geosciences, and industrial R&D.
The school takes full advantage of the large scientific instruments on the GIANT campus and the insights these instruments can provide.

European School of Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies (ESONN)
The European School of Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies is a three-week program coordinated by Grenoble Alpes University and involving most of the research organizations and labs who call the GIANT campus their home. The program offers up two parallel sessions covering the fundamentals and practicals of nanoelectronics and applications at the interface between physics and biology.
PhD students, post-docs, and junior scientists attend lectures and conduct lab assignments designed by an international scientific committee. ESONN takes place at the end of the summer. The deadline for applications is in June.

European Research Course on Atmospheres (ERCA)
Coordinated by UGA, CNRS, and European partners, the European Research Course on Atmospheres (ERCA) covers the following areas:
- Atmospheric chemistry, changes in atmospheric composition, and global contamination
- Earth climate system and the science of climate change
- Water cycle in a changing climate
- Interactions between social sciences and Earth system sciences
- Observation systems
- Long term monitoring, data analysis, and environmental services
It is open to PhD students and junior researchers and engineers seeking opportunities to learn through hands-on activities including environmental observations, data analysis, and a group project. ERCA takes place in January. The deadline for applications is October.
