The course is aimed to provide an introduction to nuclear safeguards and the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. Following the efforts of the European Safeguards Research and Development Association (ESARDA), this course contributes to enlarge the number of university students and young professionals aware of these themes.
The course units cover both technical aspects of nuclear safeguards inspections such as radiation detectors and nuclear fuel cycle facilities, as well as the history of nuclear non-proliferation and the relevant legal frameworks.
The first week is organised by the SCK•CEN Academy for Nuclear Science and Technology and takes place at the SCK•CEN Lakehouse in Mol, Belgium.
The scond week is organised by Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany. For more information about the practical organisation of the 2nd week, contact Mr. Thomas Krieger (firstname.lastname@example.org).
