PaNOSC Summer School at ELI ALPS

PhD Students and Postdoc researchers that want to increase their knowledge about the latest data-driven tools and methods to leverage large scale scientific research infrastructures are invited to join the PaNOSC Summer School on “Material Science at European Large-Scale Infrastructures using Open and FAIR Data”, to be held 12-16 September.

PaNOSC Summer School at ELI ALPS


The Summer School will introduce the modern data tools necessary to do science at large scale research infrastructures. The core focus will be on a science case of Energy Materials – investigated with X-ray, Neutron & Laser techniques with the emphasis on the complementarity of the various techniques presented. 

Participants will also be introduced to the PaNOSC project and the work carried out to develop FAIR data tools and services for the users of photon and neutron facilities, as well as to the EOSC and the PaN community trends in the domain of FAIR data. 

Moreover, the Jupyter and Python environments and tools for data visualisation, analysis and experiments’ simulation will be showcased. Other topics will span the common data search API, standard file formats (NeXus, HDF5), and hints and tips for proposal writing and data management. 

Overall, the school will provide students with the knowledge of the data life-cycle and experience with writing proposals to access photon and neutron research infrastructure for beam time.

The school will take place at ELI ALPS and in addition to the scientific programme there will be the opportunity to network with fellow data-focused researchers in a social programme.


Date of the event: 16-22 September 2022

Venue: ELI ALPS Research Institute, H-6728 Szeged, Wolfgang Sandner u. 3.

Participation in the school is free of charge. Secure your seat, places are limited!



Registration closes: 6th of August


The Summer School is organised in the framework of the PaNOSC project, by ESS and ELI ERIC.

The PaNOSC project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 823852. The project provides scientific data management tools, policies and services for enabling FAIR and Open Science in six PaN research facilities: ESRF, ILL, European XFEL, ELI, ESS and CERIC-ERIC, in collaboration with the e-infrastructures EGI and GÉANT.
