Participate in the RRFM 2018 Student Competition!

In 2018 the RRFM Progamme Committee will be organising the first Student Competition of the international Research Reactor Community.

The challenge Participating PhD and Master Students will be invited to present a compelling spoken presentation of their research topic to the international Research Reactor Community during the Opening Plenary Session of RRFM 2018. Inspired by existing Three-Minute Thesis competitions, the presentation should compress the research topic into 180 seconds, and communicate it to the international Research Reactor Community.

The recognition of the international research reactor community is at stake! Read more

New Toolkit on Nuclear Safety for Journalists

What role does nuclear play in our daily lives? What does nuclear safety mean? How are we protected in case of an accident? The World Federation of Science Journalists created a unique toolkit on Nuclear Safety Culture for journalists with key information on the basic concepts of nuclear safety, the protocol in case of a nuclear event, the main actors, past events and controversies and the contacts of European Nuclear Safety Experts. Talk to the experts and create an even more impactful story on nuclear.

Go to wfsj.org/nuclear to access the toolkit on Nuclear Safety.

Improving uncertainty evaluation thanks to nuclear data

Neutronics calculations require very precise nuclear data. In addition, uncertainty evaluation associated to the nuclear data is essential information, required for reactor design. An excelent article published in the open access journal EPJN Nuclear Science and Technologies presents a very interesting method aimed at creating correlations between nuclear data, using integral experiments, and improving notable uncertainty evaluation due to nuclear data.
