Description

Welcome to this mini-workshop for fusion (Master/PhD) students. This workshop will give an introduction to power plant life cycle, power plant (nuclear) licensing, design (engineering) workflow and tools. You will study these topics during lectures, exercises, and group discussions and many live examples from ongoing fission (EPR) and fusion (ITER) projects. The workshop will be hosted by Christian Schoenfelder.

When:

April 26th until 29th, 2021, daily from 17:00 – 21:00 CET (for a detailed schedulde take a look at the timetable)

How / where:

Online through Zoom (once available the connection details can be found here)

Who may attend:

Up to 20 students from a university that is a member of the FuseNet Association.
