The Summer School on Actinide Science and Applications is suitable for students and young researchers who have an interest in basic actinide chemistry, physics and material science. The fifteen lectures, featuring experts from international organisations and ITU, will address the following four topics:
Basic Actinide Science
The Nuclear Fuel Cycle
Reactor Fuel under Irradiation
Aspects of Actinides in the Environment
The school will give participants a glance at the intriguing science of the 5f elements and their application in modern society. The lectures will be given during the morning sessions, the afternoons will be devoted to visits of the laboratories of ITU and the neighbouring German research centre FZK. Three laboratory demonstrations will be offered to the participants.
Cost and Accommodation
The fee, including lunches (4 days), coffee breaks, the School banquet, and transportation, will be 75 € (to be paid at ITU). Lodging will be at the Hotel Aviva /Elite (www.hotelaviva.de) in Karlsruhe (10 km from the Institute) easily reached by public transport.
