Profile of the Summer School

The Frédéric Joliot / Otto Hahn Summer School pursues two objectives: On the one hand it addresses the needs and challenges of nuclear systems -- Reactor and fuel design and operation, evolutionary and innovative concepts, optimal solutions for the back-end of the fuel cycle, etc. On the other hand, the School aims at keeping scientists and engineers abreast of the latest developments in basic and applied nuclear sciences, so as to preserve the high standard of knowledge in reactor physics and reactor technology.

This international course is intended for junior as well as experienced scientists and engineers in R&D laboratories, nuclear industry and utilities. Postdocs are also encouraged to apply.

Lecturers are invited from internationally leading universities and industry. The School format encourages informal discussions and the exchange of knowledge between lecturers and participants.

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).
