2020 International School in Nuclear Engineering
13 January 2020 to 07 February 2020, France
The National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (INSTN) is organising the International School in Nuclear Engineering, promoting knowledge in the field of nuclear sciences at a high education level (13 January 2020 to 07 February 2020)
The 2020 edition will offer 6 one-week advanced courses in nuclear engineering to be held in France (Cadarache, Marcoule, or Saclay), in January and February 2020.
The courses are designed for young researchers, PhD students, post-doctorates and engineers, already having a Master of Science in nuclear engineering as a background. They present the international state-of-the-art in the main topics of nuclear engineering: reactor core physics, thermal hydraulics, materials, fuels, fuel cycle, nuclear waste. 3 ECTS will be awarded for each successfully completed course (one week).
Lecturers are internationally known experts mostly from CEA, the leading research organisation in France for nuclear energy.

Generation IV, Nuclear Reactor Systems for the Future
18-22 November 2019, CEA Saclay, France
This international course will cover the six Generation IV Systems; Gas-cooled Fast Reactor (GFR), Lead-cooled Fast Reactor (LFR), Molten Salt Reactor (MSR), Supercritical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR), Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (SFR) and Very High Temperature Reactor (VHTR). and address cross-cutting aspects of safety, material and fuel, energy conversion and the nuclear fuel cycle. It will take place from 17-21 June 2019 at CEA Saclay, France, organised jointly by the French National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (INSTN) and the Generation IV International Forum (GIF). The course is for professionals, engineers, researchers and students interested in acquiring a global view of 4th Generation Nuclear Reactors. We encourage experts that are already involved in Gen IV activities to attend as well.

Molten Salt Summer Bootcamp
1-3 July 2019, TU Delft, Netherlands
The bootcamp is organized in partnership between the US-DOE funded NuSTEM consortium and EU-funded SAMOFAR research consortium, with the goal of disseminating knowledge about molten salt science and engineering, and expanding the community of researchers in this field. Being a large multi-institution effort, this bootcamp also has the goal of facilitating knowledge exchange among the global community of molten salt researchers. In reaching to a diverse attendance, we hope to form a community of learning and research exchange among the attendance cohort that in the future contributes to knowledge exchange and establishment of global collaborations among molten salt researchers.
The bootcamp is open to: Graduate students and researchers working or planning to work on molten salt research and technology development.
