EYESTvzw is associated partner in the MEDEA European project
MEDEA is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN-ETN) in the domain of Molecular Electron Dynamics investigated by IntensE Fields and Attosecond Pulses.
One of the 6 main objectives of the MEDEA project is to increase the interest of young students in the network’s core research field (Photonics) by introducing a dedicated experimental kit in several European secondary schools. To this end about 20 PhD students will receive a one-day training on how to use the Photonics Explorer and will then reach out to secondary school students and teachers in the region of their host institute. This one-day training will take place in the MUST (Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci”), Milan , where the PhD students will also follow different workshops related to science communication.
