About ESI

The European Scientific Institute, better known as ESI-Archamps, was founded as a French non-profit organisation in 1994 at the initiative of CERN-based physicists and colleagues from a number of European universities, in order to develop high-level training courses on technologies developed at CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.

Located on the French Geneva Campus of the ArchParc business park, ESI-Archamps organises thematic postgraduate schools with an extensive network of partner universities on the science, technology and applications of particle accelerators and detectors. More recently ESI-Archamps has developed a series of summer schools in partnership with Université Grenoble-Alpes in the fast-moving area of digital health. Topics covered include health data management, precision medicine and safer nanomaterials.

ESI’s schools attract an international audience of post-graduate students (MSc, PhD) and early-career professionals. Since its creation, ESI-Archamps has delivered high-level teaching and training to more than 2500 young scientists from over 30 countries from the European Union, Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean basin and the Near-East.
