Several SDI members regularly provide lessons, training or educational activities.

Instrumentation and Data Acquisition courses

For many years, many department members offer courses and labs in the areas of instrumentation and data acquisition in various courses of Université Grenoble Alpes or Grenoble INP.

Technical management of the LPSC Instrumentation and Subatomic plateform

Florent Collovati, Grenoble INP agent within SDI, is responsible for the management, the development and the technical maintenance of the Instrumentation & Subatomic Physics Platform. This shared teaching platform between Grenoble INP-PHELMA and UGA-PHITEM, with a total surface area of ​​240 m², allows practical work to be carried out in the fields of nuclear instrumentation and experimental subatomic physics. With around twenty experimental devices, two computer rooms, one of which has a PWR (Pressurized Water Reactors) driving simulator, this platform is one of the most important platforms in subatomic physics at the national level.


In-house LabVIEW programming training

Two courses on the subject are held each year for CNRS or Grenoble INP:

    • Initiation Level
      Since 2002, a session of three days per year for 10 people.

    • Advanced Level
      One three days session per year for 10 people (since 2010).

These courses are provided by Adeline Richard, Patrick Stassi and Olivier Zimmermann.

Animation of the AlpesVIEW regional network

For those who program with LabVIEW graphical language either on a regular or occasional basis, with different levels of expertise, novice or experienced. It offers a place for knowledge and experiences exchange, sharing code or information or setting up meetings or events. This network is close to everyone in the research field, with a reasonable size allowing flexibility and durability.

Established in 2005 in the French Alps region by members from different laboratoriesthe network is based on a mailing list.

Olivier Zimmermann and Patrick Stassi animate this network.

In-house Project Management training

Several members of the department participated as speakers in the training project management CNRS and IN2P3.

Discovery internships for high-school students

Since 1998, Gabriel Mondin, Myriam Migliore, Murielle Rousseau, Olivier Zimmermann and Florent Colovati organize and supervise observation internship every year. Discovery internships at LPSC are a unique opportunity for middle or high school students to learn about research and engineering careers, and fundamental physics courses.
