Frédéric Joliot / Otto Hahn Summer School on Nuclear Reactors

General Description of the Summer School

The 26th session of the Frédéric Joliot/Otto Hahn (FJOH) Summer School on “Nuclear Reactors Physics, Fuels, and Systems”, will be dedicated to “High-fidelity Modelling and Simulation of Nuclear Reactors: Turning a Promise into Reality.” It will be held from August 25 to September 3, 2021.

Although there is hope for an improvement of the situation in the coming months regarding the COVID crisis, it is not sure that the conditions will be met in August for a residential course in Aix-en-Provence as planed initially. Therefore, FJOH-2021 will be held 100% remotely, with a balanced combination of off-line and live sessions.

FJOH summer school is an advanced post-graduate-level course aimed at junior as well as experienced scientists and engineers engaged in the broad field of nuclear sciences, engineering and technologies.

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 course represents the continuation of the Frédéric Joliot Summer Schools on “Modern Reactor Physics and the Modelling of Complex Systems”, which was created by CEA in 1995 to promote knowledge in the field of reactor physics, in a broad sense, and the international exchange of teachers, scientists, engineers and researchers. Beginning in 2004, the scope of the School was extended to include scientific issues related to nuclear fuels. The venues of the FJOH School sessions alternate between Karlsruhe and Aix-en-Provence.

The program of each School session is defined by the International FJOH Scientific Board.

FJOH is jointly organized by the CEA Energy Division (France) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT, Germany).
