Objective and audience

The European School on Nuclear Materials Science will take place from November 8 to November 14, 2020 at the Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques (IESC) in Cargèse, Corsica, France.

The school will present the state-of-the-art in nuclear materials science. The school will cover the challenging multi-scale modelling and characterization of materials phenomena in the nuclear materials science context. It will bring together world-leading scientists in topics ranging from advanced electronic structure theory to continuum modelling, as well as sophisticated experimental characterization techniques to give the students the best possible toolbox for their future careers as nuclear materials scientists. All types of nuclear materials will be treated: structural (metallic and ceramics), functional and fuel materials.

The school is co-organised by the Horizon 2020 European projects INSPYRE, GEMMA, M4F and IL TROVATORE under the auspices of the EERA-JPNM.

The school is intended for PhD students, postdocs and young researchers interested in nuclear materials science. The fee for participation is small due to the strong financial support from the partner projects.
