About the School

The Training School consists in a 5-days program where the main topics discussed will comprehend photonic/electronic sensing systems, smart-system integration, and advanced data management, with special attention to the transfer of the knowledge acquired in h-ALO, a multidisciplinary and research-oriented project. The school will contribute to young researchers’ professional development and will allow them to familiarize with the developed new tools and solutions proposed.
