XV Edition

The Specialised Group of NMR (GERMN) of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) is pleased to announce the XV Manuel Rico NMR School.

This well-established bi-annual summer course is aimed at PhD students, postdocs, technical staff of NMR facilities and researchers in general, from academy and industry, interested in deepening their understanding of NMR. The course covers theoretical aspects, state-of-the-art methods and applications in fields as diverse as Molecular Chemistry, Materials, Biology, Medicine, and Pharmaceutical Industry, including solution-state, and solid-state NMR, as well as MRI techniques.

Due to the forced interruption as a result of the pandemic in the year 2021, we decided to organize the NMR school for two consecutive years, 2022 and 2023, to respond to the high demand and recover its regularity, alternating it with the GERMN Biennial Meeting in even years.

The School counts with a panel of experienced teachers that are recognized scientists in different fields of NMR. Besides its academic value, the School provides a very friendly atmosphere, stimulating discussions and informal interactions between participants and teachers, creating the basis for joint projects and collaborations. We really encourage people who are interested in improving their knowledge in the exciting field of NMR to enroll in the School, which will surely meet their expectations.

Ordesa Hike (7 hours hike to «Horse tail water Fall»)

Jaca is one of the privileged cities of Aragon for its communications with both sides of the Pyrenees, for its mild and pleasant climate and for its cultural and sporting offers.

We will take advantage of Jaca’s proximity to the Pyrenees to visit and hike through the splendid «Lost Mountain/Ordesa Valley» National Park. In Winter, the most attractive feature is snow sports on the ski slopes of Candanchu, Astun, Panticosa and Formigal.

Throughout the year, in addition to the Municipal Pavilion of Ice, the possibilities of high mountain sports, hiking or cycling, allow you to climb the highest Pyrenean peaks or travel 90 km. of Camino de Santiago. In addition, Jaca alternates every two years with Oloron the headquarters of the Folkloric Festival of the Pyrenees.

How to get there.

By car: Jaca-Huesca-Zaragoza (N-330) and Jaca-Pamplona (N-240)

By bus: There are regular lines from Zaragoza, Huesca and Pamplona to Jaca. Consult schedules at alosa

By train: Consult frequencies and schedules at renfe

The nearest airports to Jaca are in Huesca (75 km.), Zaragoza (150 km.), Pamplona (109 km.) and Pau in France (130 km.).
