The 14th Research Reactor Group Fellowship Training Course is organized by the Eastern European Research Reactor Initiative (EERRI), in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency.
This intensive six week course is targeted to young professionals and addresses all aspects connected to research reactors. It offers the necessary background to carry out activities related to planning, commissioning, safe operation and maintenance, and effective utilisation of research reactors.
The programme is a combination of comprehensive theoretical lectures and numerous hands-on training exercises involving research reactor operation and utilisation. Practical exercises and demonstration experiments are carried out under the guidance of 4 EERRI partners: Atominstitut of the Vienna University of Technology; Czech Technical University in Prague; Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia; and Nuclear Research Institute of Rez, Czech Republic. The prospectus and draft programme of the course are available below in Project Documents.
