The Covid-19 lockdown in France took some of the spice out of the Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma Master’s in Nanotech program this year. Students usually get to do lab classes at ESRF, ILL, and CIME Nanotech. The program heads came up with an ingenious workaround. First, they teamed up with ESRF and ILL to develop a day-long online workshop that was well-received by students. The morning was dedicated to three lectures on using X-ray and neutron beams. In the afternoon, students rolled up their sleeves to work on four case studies inspired by the lectures. The traditional tours of the facilities were postponed until September.
An online seminar was also set up with Melexis, a company that regularly hires interns and recent grads from the program. Several students applied for positions as a result of the seminar.
