The RACIRI (Röntgen-Angström-Cluster (RAC) and the Ioffe-Röntgen-Institute (IRI) summer school aims to strengthen the scientific knowledge base of young researchers in advanced materials design. The school offers exchange with excellent research infrastructures in the region to be able to contribute to interdisciplinary literacy in relevant scientific fields and disciplines and starts operations this year.

“Advanced Materials Design at X-ray and Neutron Facilities”, is a joint initiative by Russia, Sweden and Germany in a cooperation between the Röntgen-Angström-Cluster (RAC) and the Ioffe-Röntgen-Institute (IRI).

About the cooperation

Part of the EU strategy the Baltic Sea Region includes increased scientific and technology cooperation between the countries. Research facilities and infrastructures are key in this strategy. With the upcoming European XFEL in Hamburg, the European Spallation Source, ESS, the new Max-IV synchrotron radiation source in Lund and the upgraded neutron reactor PIK in St. Petersburg the region will strengthen its analytical research capabilities during the next decade.
With the two strategic research cooperation frameworks, the Röntgen-Angström-Cluster and the Ioffe-Röntgen-Institute, that are closely interlinked to existing and new large-scale research infrastructures, Germany, Sweden and Russia are already connected in their scientific activities.
