The in-person 4-days summer school will focus on electronic, optical, and mechanical phenomena stemming from the various stacking configurations and interlayer interactions in van der Waals structures (vdW).


The school aims for a broad audience of graduate students (MSc and PhD) through post-docs, scientists, and engineers who wish to develop in the field.


The sessions include tutorial talks by international experts, dedicated work-shop sessions on recent challenges/opportunities, and a student poster competition.


Research collaborations are further encouraged by social events that introduce the local research atmosphere and culture, including a half-day tour.

The Summer School 2022 is supported by:

The British Embassy Israel

Israel Science Foundation

The University of Manchester

Henry Royce Institute

The Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
