Heavy metal summer school by SCK•CEN

From June 13-17, 2016 the SCK•CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology will organise the Heavy metal summer school.

Heavy liquid metal (HLM) coolants offer new perspectives for the development of innovative nuclear systems for materials research, nuclear waste transmutation and energy production. The Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK•CEN) is at the forefront of HLM nuclear technology worldwide with the development of the MYRRHA accelerator driven system.

Erice Summer School 2016

From July 13-19, 2016, the EPS-SIF International School on Energy will be hosted in Erice, Italy. The aim of the School is to present the state-of-the-art and the future perspectives for materials applied to the generation and storage of renewable and sustainable energy. 

53rd Culham Plasma Physics Summer School

This school is the 53rd in the series organized at Culham Science Centre, near Oxford, from July 18-29, 2016. No preceding knowledge of plasma physics is assumed. Previous schools have attracted students from more than 50 different countries.

Lecturers for the Summer School are drawn from the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and leading laboratories and university groups in magnetic and laser confinement fusion, space and astrophysical plasmas and low temperature plasmas from the UK and abroad.

Karlsruhe International School on Fusion Technologies

The 10th event of the KIT International School is hosted from September 12 - 23, 2016. Leading scientists from KIT as well as international Partners will present their scientific topics during lectures. Additionally there are some insights to the labs and facilities situated at the KIT.

The fee for the school is €480 and covers lectures, class notes, coffee breaks and social events. Students can apply for funding via
