The exchange of energy and particles plays an important, sometimes even a decisive role in the physics of modern quantum devices. This is particularly true for mesoscopic solid state structures such as superconducting or semiconducting circuits. These are the systems that are also very attractive from the point of view of both theoretical analysis and experimental studies in modern laboratories.

The Summer School on Open Quantum Systems and Mesoscopic Physics is a carefully tailored intensive training, to provide participants with education in state-of-the-art experimental realizations and theoretical formulations of open quantum systems. It is an opportunity for immersive focusing on strengths and limitations of ‘deep’ quantum mechanical properties, observed and exploited in current and future experimental set-ups.

The school is aimed at young scientists, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers in the topics' disciplines. The training consists of tutorials, collaborative seminar activities, poster sessions, flash talks, and contributed talks by local scientists.
