The 14th Edition of the Summer School on Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Management

An overview on nuclear decommissioning and waste management for post-graduate students.

The 2024 Edition of the Summer School on Nuclear Decommissioning and Waste Management is organised within the frame of the European Learning Initiatives for Nuclear Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation (ELINDER). ELINDER aims to raise the interest of students and professionals in the important and emerging field of decommissioning and environmental remediation and to stimulate relevant career perspectives, by offering a set of learning opportunities that combine theory and practice.

Through classroom training, visits of nuclear facilities and case studies, the 14th edition of the Decommissioning Summer School (DSS) offers insights to the promising field of nuclear decommissioning and related activities, like waste management and radiation protection.

When a nuclear facility ceases its normal operation, a multifaceted process starts, including dismantling, decontamination and other activities. “Decommissioning” means all these steps leading to the release of a nuclear facility from regulatory control. In the European Union several nuclear facilities are closed or may stop their operation in the coming decade. The need to proceed with decommissioning creates a potential for new industrial activities.

In this context, the annual Decommissioning Summer School (DSS) contributes to the acquisition of multidisciplinary competences required to support the emerging decommissioning market.

This is a 5-day learning path that introduces the students to the following subjects:

Students who wish to obtain a course certificate are welcome to sit an optional final test.
