FULL-TIME participants will follow on site* the complete 5 weeks HERCULES school programme, including lectures, visits, poster session, social activities, ... and an exhaustive practicals, labs, and tutorials schedule:

        Weeks 1, 2, 3, and 5 organised in Grenoble
       + Week 4 organised at one of our partner sites: ALBA (Barcelona, Spain), PSI (Villigen, Switzerland), Elettra / FERMI (Trieste, Italy), or DESY / European XFEL (Hamburg, Germany)

* assuming the sanitary COVID 19 context does not prevent us from organising the school on site.

The registration fees include:

  • attendance of lectures, presentations, visits, practicals, and tutorials, organised in Grenoble and at the partner site,
  • participation in the poster session organised in Grenoble,
  • accommodation*, breakfasts*, weekday lunches, and social activities both in Grenoble and at the partner facility,
  • travel back-and-forth to the partner facility, from Grenoble.

*except for the local participants, during weeks 1, 2, 3, and 5: they will not be accommodated in Grenoble, hence the reduced registration fees.

The registration fees do not include:

  • the travel from home to Grenoble and back home (from Grenoble),
  • dinners and week-end lunches,
  • health insurance,
  • personal liability insurance.



PART-TIME participants will follow online (i.e. from home) all lectures held in Grenoble, but will not take part in the practicals/labs/tutorials. They do not participate at all to week 4.

The registration fees include:

  • attendance of lectures and presentations organised in Grenoble, as they will be organized in an hybrid mode (on site for the Full-time participants and on Zoom for the online Part-time ones).

Note that all other activities (visits, practicals and tutorials, poster session, social activities) will take place on site only, so the online part-time participants will not be able to take part in them, hence the much lower registration fees.



A few grants are awarded to applicants whose laboratory is located in an emerging country (a grant motivation letter is then needed).
