The 9th International School on Nuclear Power in cooperation with Visegrad Initiative For Nuclear Cooperation – VINCO (V4G4) will take place in Poland on November 14-17, 2017. It is a very good opportunity for young scientists to get acquainted with various issues related to current and future nuclear power generation. The School promises to deal with the problems of nuclear fuel cycle, influence of low radiation doses on human health, management of radioactive waste, safety issues in III, IV generation nuclear power plants and nuclear power application for propulsion of the rockets going to Mars.
The School will take four days...Read More
