The EMBO course will be hosted by the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) located on the European Photon and Neutron (EPN) campus in Grenoble, France.
With its remarkable Alpine setting, Grenoble is a centre of scientific activity of the first rank, drawing enormous potential from the fact that it is home to a number of international and national institutes and laboratories. Hosting about 6000 guest scientists per year, the EPN campus offers an outstanding environment to conduct research while resorts around offer the experience of mountain life.
