Radiochemistry and Nuclear Instrumentation (Low Level Radioactivity)

The European Summer School of the University of Strasbourg is a prestigious one-week meeting of Post-doc, PhD students and Master students from all over Europe. They present their research projects and attend lectures on some of the most recent topics in physics presented by internationally known scientists.

The 2017 edition of the school is organized by the Faculty of Physics and Engineering of the University of Strasbourg together with the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal (INE) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

Scientific Program

The main topics of the Summer School are radio-chemistry, the challenge of measering very low radioactive radiation, new instrumental techniques and measering procedures for dosimetry and handeling of radioactive materials. All these topics have their place in the centre of the research activities of the two participating universities.

Besides the fundamental aspects of these subjects a good part of the program will cover experimental methods and numerical simulation programs. Some practical workshops assuring the active participation of the participants will complement the lectures.

The school is open to young Post-docs, PhD students and students at the Master level in physics.

The lectures will start on Tuesday morning, the 22th of August and will end on Friday evening, the 25th of August.
Registration Monday afternoon 21st 15-17h; welcome reception Monday evening.

All lectures will take place at the auditorium Weiss
1st floor at the Faculty of Physics and Engineering
3-5 rue de l’Université, Strasbourg
except one day at the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal (INE)

Validation of the Summer School

An attestation for the successful participation at the summer campus will be established on the basis of the Poster presented and the active involvement in the workshops and discussions during the lectures. The attestation may help to validate ECTS points at the home university. We suggest that home universities recognize the successful participation with up to 3 credit points (ECTS). Due to the short (1 week) duration of the school it is not possible to organize a formal exam at the end.

Housing and Transportation

Accommodation for students will be provided free of charge. Within the limits of our budget we can support some students individually by contributing modestly to their travel expenses.

Participating Institutions

The School is funded by the French Excellence Initiative (IdEx) and the Université franco-allemande (ufa). This support underlines the collaboration between the Universities and Research Institutions in the region of the Upper Rhine Region. Besides the scientific programme the participants will have the opportunity to explore the cultural and political heritage of the region of Alsace and Strasbourg, where the European Parliament and the Council of Europe are located.
