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 the safer design of 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.
