Prof_Jerome_Randon_Explaining_Organization_of_EACH_Winter_School_2018On Jan 22, 2018, the third Winter School of the EACH programme started in Valpré (Lyon, France). Altogether 36 students from more than 20 countries participate.

The Winter School offers a diverse set of activities to the participants. There are lectures on advanced analytical chemistry topics (Smart sensors, high-resolution NMR, etc) by top experts, group works and entertainment. Several sessions are presented by practitioners from reserach labs and industry. The intense working is counterbalanced by social activities.

In order to give one more piece of information what the study tracks are about, there was a session of presentations on the first day by second year students on their master thesis topics (see photos).
