1st International Summer School on Micro and Nano-fabrication tools for innovating applied electronics and fundamental research (MINATO 2024)

1st International Summer School on Micro and Nano-fabrication tools for innovating applied electronics and fundamental research (MINATO 2024), that will be held in Toulouse (France) from June 24th to July 19th

Micro and Nano technologies are nowadays “Key Enabling Technologies” for innovating applied science (electronics, high sensitivity sensors, energy harvesting and storage, quantum technology…) and fundamental research in numerous experimental fields (physics, chemistry, electronics, photonics, …). The Summer School aims at introducing micro&nano fabrication techniques, with a hands-on interdisciplinary approach that alternates lectures and experimental practices (more than 50% of time) at AIME-INSA clean rooms.

MINATO is aimed at students wishing to acquire initial training and skills in the field of micro and nanotechnologies, and discovering the so-called «French art the vivre» in the south of France.

Students will design their own summer school program with one (for 2 weeks) or two lab work (4 weeks) training sessions among:

  • Track 1: Microelectronics – MOS (metal-oxide-semiconductor) technology
  • Track 2: Energy – Integrated energy harvesting and storage technologies
  • Track 3: Nano chemistry – Chemical sensors based on nano-objects
  • Track 4: Nano physics – Remarkable properties of devices integrating 2D materials
  • Track 5: Quantum physics and technology – Ultrasensitive Sensors and quantum cryptography.

Our objective is to bring together a diverse, multi-cultural public with different educational backgrounds (degrees from bachelor of science and up to PhD level, in the fields of mathematics, electronics, physics and chemistry) to encourage cooperation, cultural and scientific exchanges.

MINATO, fully taught in English, is organized by INSA Toulouse engineer school and NanoX graduate school of research and will credit 5 ECTS and 10 ECTS for 2 and 4 weeks programs respectively.

Numerous social events and guided tours to Airbus facilities, in world heritage sites by UNESCO (Carcassonne, Canal du Midi, …) will be organized.

Please find attached the MINATO flyer for more information. 

Registrations are now open until the 22th of april 2024.
