PARADIM Summer Schools 2016-2019


PARADIM offers summer school programs that combine lectures and hands-on learning in the PARADIM facilities to educate and grow PARADIM’s community of practitioners. We also advance the field by providing sessions designed to develop the team skills necessary to enable creative and productive collaborations among theorists, crystal growers, and materials characterization experts. Through these summer schools, we are developing the next generation of technologists with the skills necessary to accelerate the discovery of atomically engineered inorganic materials that revolutionize electronics.

All summer school lectures are available in PARADIM’s Materials-by-Design Toolbox.
