TALISMAN – CEA Marcoule Summer School 2014 and Plenary Meeting

Actinide Chemistry for Future Fuel Cycle

Candidature are closed.

The School (15-18 June 2014)

Every two years, CEA organises a Summer School on Actinides Sciences, supported by the ACTINET and now TALISMAN Network. In 2010, the Summer School focused on the innovation in analytical sciences for actinides. In 2012, it was co-organised with NNL and Univesity of Manchester and closely associated to the Plutonium Future Conference.

In 2014, the School is back to CEA Marcoule and focuses on actinides chemistry for future fuel cycles, addressing the three scopes of TALISMAN: actinide chemistry for separation, actinide materials and actinides in the environment. The School is split into three activities: courses, demonstrations (at ATALANTE and ICSM) and general lectures.

Download the flyer here.

The participants to the School are invited to attend the TALISMAN Plenary Meeting, following the School.

The courses will start on Sunday 15th morning.

The Plenary Meeting (19-20 June 2014)

This meeting will allow you to meet the TALISMAN consortium, to better know the Pooled Facilities and have an illustration of the research performed within the TALISMAN Joint Research Projects. More details on the website

Cost and Accomodation

The fees (250€) cover the accomodation including breakfast (Hotel in Avignon) from Saturday 14th to Saturday 21st of June, the lunches and coffee breaks from Sunday 15th to Friday 20th, the Plenary Diner and the transportation between Avignon and Marcoule
