6th Summer School on Actinide Science and Applications
Every two years the JRC-ITU organises Summer Schools on Actinide Science at its laboratories in Karlsruhe. Young researchers from all over the world have participated in lectures, laboratory visits and demonstrations. The 6th Summer School will be held from 14th to 17th June 2011. This school will be co-sponsored by the ACTINET I3
The Summer School on Actinide Science and Applications is suitable for students and young researchers who have an interest in basic actinide chemistry, physics and material science. The lectures, featuring experts from international organisations and JRC-ITU, will address the following topics:

- The Nuclear Fuel Cycle
- Nuclear Safeguards, Security and Forensics
The school will give participants a glance at the intriguing science of the 5f elements and their application in modern society. The lectures will be given during the morning sessions, the afternoons will be devoted to visits of the laboratories of JRC-ITU (controlled area) and the neighbouring German research centre KIT. Three laboratory demonstrations will be offered to participants.
