, the 2023 European Crystallographic School is planned as an in presence event at the moment.

The school will be held in Berlin, at the site of the BESSY II electron storage ring operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

The focus of the 2023 School will be laid upon the various applications of X-ray crystallography of powders, small molecules and proteins, covering from the fundaments of Diffraction to the latest developments in the fields.

The school will be directed to undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and young scientists from different fields (biology, biochemistry, chemistry, material science, physics, etc.) who are eager to learn more about the possibilities of crystallography.

Fundamental lectures will be taught during the mornings. Afternoons will be dedicated to lectures on applications and hands-on tutorials.

Application for ECS-8 is now open until 28th February 2023.
