The bioHC Schools are organised by the European Scientific Institute which is a CERN-supported institution developing high level training courses in the fields of disruptive technologies and innovation. The European Scientific Institute (ESI) was founded in 1994 at the initiative of CERN-based physicists and a group of European universities in order to develop high level training courses in the fields of particle accelerators, particle and astroparticle detectors, medical physics and scientific medical computing. ESI’s Schools principally target an international audience of post-graduate students (MSc, PhD) and young professionals working in research institutes, hospitals or industry. Located at Archamps-Technopole, just outside Geneva, ESI is supported by the CERN, in the form of faculty, computing resources, etc.
