Education and training

Registration information for the GREAT-PIONEER courses has been released!

GRE@T-PIONEeR is a Euratom project developing specialised education and training resources for post-graduate students and engineers in nuclear reactor physics, modelling, and safety.

The GREAT-PIONEER project proposes courses that cover a wide range of aspects of nuclear reactor modelling and physics. These courses, offered by experts from all around Europe, are open to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and nuclear engineers looking to enhance their skills.

The topics covered in the courses offered by GREAT-PIONEER will allow the students to fully comprehend the methods and corresponding calculations used for modelling the behaviour of nuclear reactor cores, from the generation of nuclear cross-sections to the response of a reactor during a transient.

The course modules will contain specifically designed interactive sessions during which the various teachers will closely interact with the students in order to support them in their learning.

Most of the preparatory course elements will be delivered online and the students will have the possibility to follow the interactive sessions either on-site or remotely on the web. These courses will be complemented by laboratory exercises at three European research and training reactors to also gain practical experience.

The registration dates for the courses can be found on the website here:
