One of the featured tasks of MaX is to offer to students and researchers a certain amount of online courses and video lectures given for higher education in Universities, in order to favour training at distance.


Most recent video lecturers and training materials are available on the Lhumos training portal. Supported by MaX, Lhumos is a novel educational platform that gathers videos, lectures, codes, tutorials, seminars, and exercises tackling a wide range of topics including electronic structure calculations, molecular dynamics, high-performance computing, and code optimization.


Links to other relevant lectures are given below.
