The School was for about 60 students who are finishing their graduate studies or have just terminated them. The School was mainly didactic; it was aimed at providing basic knowledge about phenomenological aspects of superconductivity and emphasise the principles of operation and design of selected applications. Some seminars on specialised topics had been presented as well. The students had been asked to solve problems proposed by the lecturers and had the opportunity to present posters summarising their research interests.
