We would like to invite you for a Forever Summer School (FSS) devoted to Research Reactors, their usage and their fuels. The school will be held in Mol, Belgium (SCK CEN Lakehouse) from April 26 to 30, 2021.

The target audience consists of senior Masters students (Physics, Nuclear engineering, Material Science and similar), PhD students and young professionals working in the area of research reactors.

The school aims at:

  • Increasing general knowledge of research reactor fuels;
  • Improving understanding of research reactor fuel performance;
  • Understanding operation and safety of research reactors;
  • Increasing awareness of utilization of research reactors.

Candidates can apply through the site

Please note, that in addition to the lectures, a number of attractive events are planned, such as an excursion to the BR2 Reactor, a visit to the hot cell Laboratory for High and Medium Level Activity (LHMA), and a poster session by the participants.

The registration fee and accommodation cost are supported by the FOREvER project. Participants are however requested to make their own travel arrangements. The website also includes information about a potential travel grant.

Safety of learners and lecturers is our priority. We plan to proceed with the organisation of the School on the foreseen date. However, if due to the COVID-19 outbreak we need to postpone the School, participants will not have to pay any costs. Therefore we strongly encourage you to apply now and complete all administrative requirements in order to guarantee access to the venue!

We ask you to share the news about the FSS within your organizations and to encourage potential candidates to register.
