Pre-IMRP Course on Radiation Processing for Advanced Materials
University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne, Reims, France
Co-organized by University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (URCA) and the International Irradiation Association (iia), the pre-conference training course on radiation processing of materials primarily intends to create synergies with IMRP19 through the complementarity of the scientific and technological contents.
The 3-day long training course will offer a condensed overview of radiation processing applied to material enhancement. It will emphasize the physical phenomena, the chemical mechanisms and the technological aspects of radiation processing. The attendees will thus have the keys for apprehending the sessions on advanced radiation chemistry that will be presented the following week during IMRP19. The course will strengthen their capability to carry out their academic or professional activities with a strengthened background.
Graduate students (MSc, PhD) and young professionals with background in physics, chemistry, biology, engineering with strong interest and motivation to acquire additional skills in the field of radiation processing. Several traineeships might become available. More information will be provided here in the coming weeks. Depending on the number of registrants, the course might also be open to other professionals.
Application for Traineeships
Selected graduate students and young professionals might be eligible for a traineeship covering travel and living expenses on a lump sum basis.
Regular attendees must register to the course via the IMRP 2019 website https://imrp-iia.com.
