Soft Nano

Soft matter, interfaces with the living world, nanomaterials and nano-objects
The Soft Nano program aims to provide training through research in the fields of physical chemistry of soft matter and nanomaterials. It relies in particular on long internships in laboratories and on the ESONN European School.
Soft nano program is an interdisciplinary research training program based, on the one hand, on a Master's degree and, on the other hand, on a long internship in a laboratory where the students are part of a research team. Their participation in the ESONN European School is required. It is based on a rich network of interdisciplinary research teams in chemistry, physics or biology interested in properties due to confinement with important applications in many transverse fields such as nanomaterials, energy or applications for life and medicine. The program offers scholarships for foreign students and outgoing mobility grants for French students.
