We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
This school is intended to provide an overview to the measurement and analysis techniques associated with neutron induced reactions alongside the nuclear theory governing these reactions.
Lectures and hands-on computer exercises will be alternated. Topics include neutron-induced reactions (including elastic and in-elastic cross section measurements), the optical model and its link to the resonance region, neutron time-of-flight measurements, integral measurements, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear data libraries and more.
The school is aimed at PhD students, post-docs and researchers working in the field related to neutron time-of-flight measurements and neutron resonance analysis. Since the capacity of receiving participants is limited, priority will be given to applications of PhD students and post-docs.
The school is organised within the Framework Programme 7 (FP7) project CHANDA (Solving Challenges in Nuclear Data for the Safety of European Nuclear Facilities), and in collaboration with the UK Nuclear Data Network.
Deadline for applications: 08 September 2017
You will be notified whether you are selected for participation to the school. In that case you will be requested to supply additional information for access to the JRC.
