The objectives of the thematic graduate school on science and engineering of materials, interfaces and nanostructures (MAIN) are
Research in the fields of materials, surfaces and interfaces, and nanosciences is characterised by the need to integrate a wide range of disciplines (biochemistry, chemistry, physics, chemical physics, engineering, …) and using both theoretical approaches (modelling and simulation), and experimental approaches (synthesis and characterisation).
MAIN gathers together research teams actives in the fields of physics, chemistry, agronomic sciences, biological engineering, engineering sciences.

PhD students must follow a doctoral training program during their thesis and are invited to refer to the doctoral regulations in force at the university in which they are registered.
Each year, the EDT-MAIN organizes a PhD students’ Scientific Day, which gives them an excellent opportunity to present their research topic and latest results to their peers.
