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.

Due to accounting requirements, each attendee should arrange the accommodation directly with the Jaca University Residence as explained in the accommodation section. The accommodation is paid separately.
The accommodation is at the University Residence of Jaca, inaugurated in 1929 to accommodate the Summer Courses of Spanish Language and Culture of the University of Zaragoza.
At present, the Summer Courses include both courses directed to the study of Spanish as a foreign language, as well as the university extension focused on social interest topics. Outside the summer period, the Residence is the frequent venue for congresses, colloquia and scientific seminars, and hosts frequent cultural meetings.
The accommodation at the University Residence of Jaca with arrival on Sunday, June 18th and departure on Friday, June 23th, in half board (breakfast & lunch) and double room.
Each attendee should arrange it directly with the Jaca University Residence using the form below.
Download the form and fill in with the data of the person/company that will pay it.
Send this completed document to the Jaca University Residence (email@example.com with subject: CURSO RMN).Attach a photocopy of your DNI or passport if you will pay the invoice. This document is not needed if the invoice is to be paid by your institution or employer.
Pricing. Standard accommodation (whole course): 5 days in double room with breakfast and 4 lunchs = 189.75 EUR. Contact directly the Residence if you have particular requests.
A number of travel aids (100 EUR) will be awarded to help young researchers to attend the meeting. The total number of aids will depend on budget availability.
Travel aids should be applied for at the registration. With their request, they must attach a letter from their supervisor explaining the benefits expected for the course in the context of their research project as well as the unavailability of alternative financing resources.
Requirements for travel aids:
-Applicants working in Spanish laboratories must be members of the GERMN society. (click here to access registration form)
-Furthermore, a limited number of travel aids is reserved for applicants from countries other than Spain.

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.).
