Programme Overview

Leading world experts present overviews of a full range of nuclear-related topics. The curriculum is adapted to satisfy the needs of the particular country and audience but the intention is to leave attendees with a full appreciation of the key issues influencing the development of nuclear today. Lecturers are encouraged to summarise key points and draw out important issues for further discussion. These are then taken up at coffee breaks and lunches, where the teaching faculty and local experts are freely available to stimulate discussion and debate.
Teaching is generally in English, but translation services have been used on some courses.  There may also be some additional presentations from sponsoring organisations about their own activities.
The thematic programme below can be adapted to meet local needs, but the topics suggested should provide a good indication of the core elements of the course.
