Education and training

SCK CEN Heavy Metal Summer School

During this summer school, participants will gain insight into the state-of-the-art research focused on the development of MYRRHA and other HLM-based nuclear systems. The summer school will cover several aspects of HLM technology that are essential for the engineering design and safety of nuclear systems.

Experts from SCK CEN and other internationally renowned research organizations will give the lectures. They will cover the most advanced HLM-based nuclear systems and deal with the neutronics, chemical, thermal-hydraulic and materials issues and challenges in instrumentation, safety and design. Complementary to the lectures, visits are foreseen to various experimental facilities that were constructed at SCK CEN in support of the MYRRHA project.


In case COVID-19 measures at the time do not allow a face-to-face meeting, it will switch to an online format, with online alternatives for the laboratory visits.
