The summer school provides a coherent picture of the actual knowledge about solar corona. It gives introduction to the physical conditions of the uppermost atmospheric layer of the Sun and the overview of the actual ground-based and space observations. The link between solar corona, coronal eruptive events and space weather is also covered.
