  2. 2. What is EERRI? <ul><li>E astern E uropean R esearch R eactor I nitiative </li></ul><ul><li>Members: </li></ul><ul><li>Austria : Vienna University of Technology/ Atominstitut, </li></ul><ul><li>Czech Republic : Czech Technical University and Rez Nuclear Research Centre </li></ul><ul><li>Hungary : KFKI Budapest Research Reactor and Budapest University of Technology and Economics </li></ul><ul><li>Poland : Institute of Atomic Energy Maria Research Reactor </li></ul><ul><li>Romania : INR Pitesti Triga Reactor </li></ul><ul><li>Slovenia : Joszef Stefan Institute </li></ul>
  3. 3. Objectives <ul><li>Member States (MS) request IAEA assistance to develop nuclear skills and resources in support of national nuclear power programmes under development. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of these MS plan to construct a research reactor as a first step to develop nuclear competence and infrastructure. </li></ul><ul><li>Countries with little or no existing nuclear infrastructure, human resources and skills must be developed to support these planning activities </li></ul><ul><li>EERRI was approached by the IAEA to organize and implement a Group Fellowship Training Program on Research Reactors (GFTPRR) to satisfy the increasing demand for that skill development. </li></ul><ul><li>The GFTPRR will be offered to participants from MS who have expressed interest in this subject to the IAEA. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Objectives <ul><li>Course is organized in collaboration with the Vienna University of Technology/Atominstitute (VUT/ATI). </li></ul><ul><li>The first iteration will involve VUT/ATI, two Hungarian Nuclear Research Institutes, and staff members from the Jozef Stefan Institute's/Ljubljana (IJS), Slovenia as well as the IAEA. </li></ul><ul><li>The duration of the training program will be 6 weeks and cover about 30 topics ranging from theoretical lectures to practical experiments : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organisational Matters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Research Reactor Operation and Maintenance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Radiation Protection </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The first training course is planned for spring 2009 with six participants. </li></ul>
