The second part of the course takes place August 28th - September 1st at  WUST Wroclaw in Poland and deals with "Helium technology, cryocoolers and instrumentation". Finally, Septemb 4th - 8th NTNU of Trondheim, Norway offers a course on "Liquified natural gas."

Lecturers are both members of the organizing universities and a number of invited external experts. In addition to the lessons, the program of the ECC includes technical excursions, tutorials and demonstrations. The course finishes with two written examinations (cryogenics fundamentals and processes) in accordance with ECTS standards.

The course is open to master and PhD students from the organizing universities, as well as potentially from other universities and institutions , who are interested in cryogenic technology. Due to a limited capacity an application process is established. Applications should apply with a CV, including a photo, and a letter of motivation.
