The Frédéric Joliot / Otto Hahn Summer School pursues two objectives: On the one hand it addresses the challenges of the future, due to new reactor generations, optimal solutions for the back-end of the fuel circle and the necessity of a fundamental understanding of nuclear physics. On the other hand, the preservation of the high standard of knowledge in reactor physics and reactor technology is in the focus of the school.
This international course is intended for post-doc natural scientists in R&D laboratories, nuclear industry and utilities.
Lecturers are invited from internationally leading universities and industry, who are present during the entire school. That guaranties an intensive exchange of knowledge between lecturers and students.
The Frédéric Joliot / Otto Hahn Summer School is a continuation of the Frédéric Joliot Summer School founded by the Commissariat à l´Énergie Atomique in 1995 to promote knowledge in the field of reactor physics in Cadarache, France.
The Frédéric Joliot / Otto Hahn Summer School is jointly organized by the Nuclear Energy Division of the Commissariat à l´Énergie Atomique (CEA/DEN, France) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany).
