    • What is EERRI?
      • E astern E uropean R esearch R eactor I nitiative
      • Members:
      • Austria : Vienna University of Technology/ Atominstitut,
      • Czech Republic : Czech Technical University and Rez Nuclear Research Centre
      • Hungary : KFKI Budapest Research Reactor and Budapest University of Technology and Economics

      • Slovenia : Joszef Stefan Institute
    • Objectives
      • Member States (MS) request IAEA assistance to develop nuclear skills and resources in support of national nuclear power programmes under development.
      • Some of these MS plan to construct a research reactor as a first step to develop nuclear competence and infrastructure.
      • Countries with little or no existing nuclear infrastructure, human resources and skills must be developed to support these planning activities
      • 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.
      • The GFTPRR will be offered to participants from MS who have expressed interest in this subject to the IAEA.
    • Objectives
      • Course is organized in collaboration with the Vienna University of Technology/Atominstitute (VUT/ATI).
      • 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.
      • The duration of the training program will be 6 weeks and cover about 30 topics ranging from theoretical lectures to practical experiments :
        • Organisational Matters
        • Research Reactor Operation and Maintenance
        • Radiation Protection
      • The first training course is planned for spring 2009 with six participants.
