From a French-Romanian collaboration to the European School on Magnetism

Research schools intended for graduate students have been organized jointly in Romania since 1997, with topics mostly related to Magnetism. The first schools were conducted in French and gathered French and Romanian students. Since 2003 the schools have been conducted in English and progressively became more international, concerning both the choice of lecturers and attendees. Consequently, this series of schools has been renamed the European School on Magnetism (ESM). In 2009 ESM was held in Timisoara with the topic “Models in Magnetism : from basic aspects to practical uses”. 120 attendees were registered on a first-come first-served basis. These were mostly PhDs and post-docs counting 31 nationalities and coming from 23 countries, mainly European.

Through a constant evolution the School has created a unique pedagogical environment, informal and interactive, where students truly get the most out of teaching : ten full days duration, both lectures and tutorials, question sessions, open-access library dedicated to magnetism etc.
The core of the organization of ESM relies on research scientists from Néel Institute and Spintec. It is supported by many institutions and most notably UJF and CNRS, and is guided by a European scientific committee. The upcoming events will be more closely associated with the bi-annual, largest European conference on Magnetism JEMS (Joint European Magnetic Symposia), which itself was initiated and first held in Grenoble in 2001. This new association should further increase the attractiveness of ESM, and through it the key role played by Grenoble laboratories and universities in modern magnetism.
