We are proud to announce that in January/February 2022, four different demonstration courses will be held at the ENEEP partner institutions. Application is possible via the eneep.org website. Master students, PhD students and/or trainees with nuclear engineering, nuclear physics or similar background are welcome.

Selected participants from EU member state countries will be able to attend the course for FREE and will be granted an ENEEP fellowship that can be used for accommodation and daily allowance for the duration of the courses.

The total number of participants in each individual (IA) and group (GA) demonstration course is one and ten person(s), respectively. Besides that, the courses are also open for additional one and two selected students/trainees (including non-eligible countries), who would be required to pay their own expenses and the course fee. Details on all courses can be found in their prospectuses.

The application deadline is November 15, 2021, selected applicants will be notified before December 15, 2021.

Female applicants are particularly encouraged to participate in these courses.

Application is now open for the following courses:

Course Title: GA-1 Safe and secure operation of nuclear installations

Date and venue: 24.-28.1.2022, Bratislava, Slovakia and 31.1-04.02.2022, Prague, Czech Republic


The objective of this group course is to give the participants chance to carry out experiments and hands-on activities related to various aspects of the safe and secure operation of nuclear installations. The course is aimed at students in Master degree programs studying nuclear engineering as the major curriculum. It is also suitable for students studying various major engineering curricula such as power engineering or similar. The first week of the course will be held at the Slovak university of technology in Bratislava and will include nuclear safety in practice, radiation protection in practice and nuclear security – demonstration of non-proliferation. The second week will be held at the Czech Technical University in Prague consisting of the visit of the VR-1 reactor, radiation and neutron detection in practice, radiation monitoring in practice, reactor physic in practice, hands-on operation of the reactor and nuclear security in practice.

Course title: GA-2 Experimental Reactor Physics

Date and venue: 14.-18.2.2022, Ljubljana, Slovenia


Reactor Physics is the field of Physics, which studies applications of the nuclear chain reaction in order to achieve a controlled rate of nuclear fission in a nuclear reactor for the production of energy. This is made possible by nuclear reactor design, based on important physical phenomena enabling achievement and control over the nuclear chain reaction and feedback mechanisms.

The objective of this group course is to perform a series of experiments at the JSI TRIGA research reactor, each one highlighting a particular aspect or physical phenomenon in Reactor Physics.

Course title: IA-1 Experimental Study of the TRIGA fuel characteristics

Date and venue: 07.-11.2.2022, Vienna, Austria


The TRIGA-reactors are purely research reactors of the open-pool type that are used for training, research and isotope production. Throughout the world there are more than 50 TRIGA-reactors in operation, Europe alone accounting for 10 of them. These reactors utilize a special fuel, with a unique feature that assures their inherent safety. Safe by nature, and not safe by design was the main goal. In this individual course for PhD students and/or trainees at the TRIGA reactor of TU Wien, the fuel characteristics are studied in detail performing several experiments.

Course title: IA-2 Experiments on the Training Reactor

Date and venue: 07.-11.2.2022, Budapest, Hungary


The aim of this individual course at the school reactor of BME is to provide experimental opportunity for PhD students or trainees of nuclear engineering or physics to perform various experiments that may be used for the verification of certain calculations. Besides looking into or participating in the related calculations, the participant will have to analyse the experimental conditions of the measurements and thus conclude on calculated-to-experimental ratios, along with the underlying uncertainties, both for the experiments and the calculations.
