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.

OPEN Course REGISTRATION: 
Hands-on exercises on the AKR-2 training reactor

Hands-on exercises on the AKR-2 training reactor education and training will : 

  • Make use of the capabilities of the AKR-2 training reactor.
  • Contribute to the development of hands-on skills in nuclear reactor physics by making use of the AKR-2 reactor.
  • Provide experiments that illustrate real applications of nuclear research reactors, such as the production of radioisotopes for medical and industrial purposes or the utilization of neutron activation analysis techniques for the identification of unknown samples.
  • Provide a condensed introduction to nuclear reactor physics/kinetics that will help students better assimilate and understand the behaviour of nuclear reactor systems.

Registrations close on June 9th.
