DENORMS Action Training Schools 1 and 2 took place in Prague (CZ), organised and hosted by Czech Technical University in Prague (České vysoké učení technické v Praze, CTU) from 26th to 30th September 2016.
More than 50 trainees participated in these training schools that aimed at providing a common theoretical background to researchers and engineers working on acoustic metamaterials, metasurfaces and sonic crystals as well as conventional acoustic materials. 37 trainees received a COST grant.
