HANDS-ON TRAINING working with Plutonium and Actinides
POSTPONED TO 2023
Gothenburg , 5-9 September 2022
The course is organized by the A-CINCH consortium, and it consists of 2 parts:
- Distance learning via CINCH Moodle (see and sign up at moodle.cinch-project.eu) – follow-up discussions on-site.
- Hands-on training that will take place at CHALMERS, Institute of Technology
All teaching will be in English.
The course provides fundamental theoretical knowledge of principles and concepts on Plutonium and Actinide chemistry.
The theoretical knowledge is complemented by practical hands-on training in the selected radioanalytical methods.
It consists of a theoretical component which will be delivered through a combination of distance learning via CINCH Moodle/electronic platform and on-site face-to-face teaching.
The practical hands-on component will take place in active laboratories at the Department of Nuclear Chemistry of Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg.
This dedicated training course has been designed for individuals with at least Masters’ level Chemistry background, who need to extend their skills and knowledge of nuclear and radiochemistry to the field of application of radionuclides and ionising radiation in analytical chemistry.

HANDS-ON TRAINING ON ANALYSIS OF ALPHA, BETA AND GAMMA EMITTERS BY RADIOCHEMICAL SPECTROSCOPIC TECHNIQUES
Ljubljana, 13-17 June 2022
The course is organized by the A-CINCH Consortium and it consists of 2 parts (see and sign up at https://moodle.cinch-project.eu/).
The first part is delivered as distance learning course and will take place at moodle.cinch-project.eu. It will include an introduction to radiochemical spectroscopic analysis of alpha, beta and gamma emitters with theoretical considerations. In addition to that, gamma spectroscopy of environmental samples will be covered, as well as determination of uranium by alpha-particle spectrometry and determination of Po-210 by alpha-particle spectrometry and Pb-210 by beta counting. Participants have to successfully finish this course before entering the on-site course.
The second part will include practical hands-on training and will take place at the Jožef Stefan Institute, Department of Environmental Sciences. It will include hands-on experience in determining uranium in calcite samples, Po-210, Pb-210 in fish samples and Cs-137 in water.
All teaching will be in English.

The SaTE project was produced with the financial support of the European Commission.
European Leadership for Safety Education training
ELSE Diploma Training
(5-16 Sept 2022 in Nice + 5-6 June 2023 hybrid)
The ELSE project aims to develop a new research-based approach for education in the domain of leadership for safety.
Participants will strengthen their understanding of leadership for safety problematics and develop the ability to critically and knowledgeably practice their leadership skills in nuclear and radiological working environments.
Based on a multidisciplinary approach drawing on most recent academic research results, and including the development of a personal project supervised by a senior expert, this course is designed to complement the existing training curricula currently provided by the nuclear sector organizations, including IAEA.
Candidates are expected to attend both sessions: 5-16 Sept 2022 in Nice, France and 5-6 June 2023 hybrid mode
