The aim of this School is to provide a comprehensive foundation for researchers in the field of soft matter, living matter, complex fluids and soft nanotechnology.

The lectures will introduce key topics of current interest together with the theoretical, experimental and computer simulation approaches used to address them. The School is directed towards postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds including physics, chemistry, chemical engineering and biophysics.

Lecturers will deliver a mini-course consisting of 2 lectures and a workshop
