International Summer School, 1-5 July 2024

The international summer school “Mechanics of active soft materials: experiments, theory, numerics, and applications” is part of the proposals of the Alessandro Volta Foundation and will take place at Villa del Grumello (Como) from Monday, July 1 to Friday, July 5, 2024.
The school aims to create a bridge between mechanics, chemistry, and physics to educate future scientists in the novel and fast-growing scientific framework of active soft matter. Particularly, lectures will introduce the participants to fundamental notions of solid, computational, and experimental mechanics for these materials. Hands-on sections are scheduled from day one to day four. During these practical sessions, participants will be able to carry out projects related to the topics explained during the lectures. At the end of the School, the teams will make a pitch and the best one will be awarded.
