The key innovative aspect of the HELIOS graduate school comes from bringing together leading scientists from different domains in physics to face the challenge of creating the next generation of instruments. This challenge creates a new playground where intellectually interesting problems for scientists and engineers are approached with a different strategy:

Together we are stronger!

We are convinced that experimental physicists are driven by a common curiosity, and the need of facing physical problems with more and more advanced technology. Excellence and innovative methods will only be possible if collaborative research is forged in such a way that a common and genuine intellectual interest emerges. The key of success here is to bring together highly motivated scientists from different domains with the scientific goal of exploring matter at different time and length scales and the common focus of advancing the modern instrumentation by working under the same umbrella.
