The World Nuclear University is pleased to announce that the thirteenth annual WNU Summer Institute will be held in Uppsala, Sweden, in 2017.
Uppsala is just 38 minutes from Stockholm and 18 minutes from Arlanda International airport, so it is very well connected for international travel. As one of Sweden's four major cities, it combines the vibrancy of city life and the intimacy and serenity of a small town, making it a perfect setting for our course.
