Teaching of the GRE@T-PIONEeR courses will be fully online or hybrid (i.e., combination of online and in-person). Specialised facilities allow for both online and physical interactions, such as the hybrid Active Learning Classrooms at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden and at Universitat Politècnica de València, Valencia, Spain. For online learning, a Learning Management System (LMS) is used by the teachers for course delivery and management, providing 24/7 access to all teaching resources.

The courses are free of charge. Nevertheless, if one participates to the interactive sessions in-person, the participants need to cover their travel and accommodation costs.

You can find the registration dates for the courses below. 

  • Course on “Reactor transients, nuclear safety and uncertainty and sensitivity analysis”: Registration will open on December 6th, 2022 and will close on December 27th, 2022. The on-site sessions will be held in Valencia, Spain.

  • Course on “Core modelling for transients”: Registration is closed.
  • Course on “Nuclear data for energy and non-energy applications”: Registration is closed.
  • Course on “Neutron transport at the fuel cell and assembly levels”: Registration is closed.
  • Course on “Core Modelling  for Core Design”: Registration is closed.
  • Course on “Radiation protection in nuclear environment”: Registration will open on December 27th, 2022 and will close on January 17th, 2023. The on-site sessions will be held in Budapest, Hungary.
  • Hands-on exercises on the AKR-2 training reactor: Registration will open on January 2nd, 2023 and will close on January 23rd, 2023. The on-site sessions will be held in Dresden, Germany.
  • Hands-on exercises on the CROCUS training reactor: Registration will open on February 27th, 2023 and will close on March 20th, 2023. The sessions will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland. 
  • Hands-on exercises on the BME training reactor: Registration will open on March 13th, 2023 and will close on April 3rd, 2023. The on-site sessions will be held in Budapest, Hungary.

The planned dates for the interactive sessions are listed below.

The participants to the interactive sessions are expected to complete some preparatory amounting to ca. 40 hours of self-studying prior to the interactive sessions.
