Summer Schools

Each year, DRESDEN-concept partners hold Summer Schools in order to network with the world beyond the campus and exchange ideas on innovations. The Dresden Summer Schools will be organised on different topics and for different target groups. They are designed to promote professional and private further education and networking.

You will find an overview on this page:

FEBRUAR // FEBRUARY

Gapless Fermions - from Fermi liquids to strange metals

Content:

Properties of strongly correlated metals, often dubbed as strange metals, are rather poorly understood in comparison to their weakly interacting counterparts (normal Fermi liquids). This is in spite of their ubiquity – normal state of high temperature superconductors; metals with fluctuating magnetism; gapless quantum spin liquids, to name a few. The aim of this winter school is to teach the newest generations of young researchers the basics and central developments of the study of correlated metals.

Participants:

PhD students, international researchers

Date:

17 – 28 February 2020

Deadline:

31 October 2019

AUGUST // AUGUST

Plant morphology and anatomy as inspiration for engineering, materials science, and architecture

Content:

In the last two decades, plants have increasingly been used as a source of inspiration for new material concepts, constructions or actuators in various disciplines, such as mechanical engineering, material sciences or architecture. Within the framework of the Summer School, the participants* should use the diversity of the collections in the Botanical Garden in small groups as a starting point for creative transformations into potential applications. Great importance is attached to an interdisciplinary composition of the groups when working on the projects. The participants will be selected on the basis of a sketch of ideas to be submitted in advance. The SLUB Makerspace will be involved in the elaboration of the project work.
The presentation of the results will take place in the Botanical Garden as part of the 200-year anniversary celebration.

Participants:

International students at the master’s level and doctoral students from the fields of biology, engineering and architecture. In addition, up to three artists* should be allowed to participate (artists in residence).

Date:

10-30 August 2020

SEPTEMBER // SEPTEMBER

Henry Arnhold Dresden Summer School

Inhalt:

The Henry Arnhold Dresden Summer School is an interdisciplinary programme for young academics and museum professionals. It takes its name from the honorary fellow of the TU Dresden, Henry Arnhold, whose philanthropic spirit and close ties to Dresden, the city of his birth, have inspired diverse partnerships between the city’s cultural and academic institutions.
The project aims to bring together high-level speakers and experts from the participating institutions to discuss topical issues relating to how museums and libraries perceive themselves, their mission, and the state of collections and exhibitions in the future. The discussions cover underlying theoretical concepts but also include concrete practical approach.
