European Doctorate in Nanostructures and Nanotechnologies

Dottorato NanostruttureThe PhD School in Nanostructures & Nanotechnologies at the Department of Materials Science of the University of Milano Bicocca is a three-years curriculum for Master graduated students in Science or Technology.

The aim of the School is the formation of scientists or science-related professionals by a research training in the synthesis, the characterisation or the modeling of nanostructures, either organic, inorganic or biologic in nature.

The educational training in the first two years consists in research  and advanced formation activities (internal and external courses). The third year will be devoted to the thesis writing in English.  

Partner of the Doctorate are:

  • Ecole Normale Supérieure, Lyon
  • Max Planck Institut für Festkörperforschung, Stuttgart.
  • Institut Charles Sadron (ICS/CNRS), Strasbourg.
  • Cardiff University (School of Chemistry), Cardiff .
  • CCLRC Rutheford Appleton Laboratory, Chilton-Oxford.
  • Johannes Kepler Universität, Linz.
  • STMicroelectronics, Agrate (Milano).


Chairman of the PhD curriculum is  prof. Gianfranco Pacchioni.
