The Graduate School is motivated by:
(1) The importance of electronic structure calculations of materials at the nano scale (such as catalysis, fuel cell research, magnetic recording and spin electronics, semiconductor technology, pharmacy etc.), has resulted in a sharp increase in the number of European groups (including industrial groups) starting with electronic structure calculations; these groups, however, do not have the optimal knowledge and expertise for adequate training of their PhD students.
(2) The field of electronic structure calculations has become so broad that single institutions do not have the expertise to provide training of the entire field; only at the European level does this expertise exist.
(3) The gap between education provided by university lectures and the much higher level of science in real research and at international workshops and conferences is steadily increasing.
(4) The combined training and research program, will give young researchers the opportunity to develop in the European Psi-k network at a very early stage of their career.
