The European Commission (EC), DG XII-F.5 has provided clarification on the training course, EuroCourse-99, on "Advanced Nuclear Reactor Design and Safety", which will take place in Garching bei München, Germany, between 17 and 19 May 1999.

The course has been organised jointly by the "Gesellschaft für Anlagen und Reaktorsicherheit" (GRS) and unit DGXII-DII-3, "Nuclear Fission", of the EC. It is intended for graduates from technical or scientific universities and for scientists and engineers having a good background in nuclear technology, particularly light water reactors (LWRs). The lecturers are well-known experts from the European Union (EU), representing research, universities, regulators, industry and utilities.

The course programme has 22 lectures which will cover:

- State-of-the-art review of current reactor technologies and safety;
- Overview of the relevant advanced reactor design concepts (with emphasis on those developed in the EU);
- Experimental and analytical research related to advanced reactor safety.

The course lectures will be complemented by a visit to the Bavarian nuclear power plant Isar II at Ohu, and a presentation of the GRS plant analyser. It will conclude with a summary and evaluation session.

A folder of lecture notes will be available for participants at the beginning of the course. The technical programme will be complemented by cultural and social activities.

The registration fee is 350 euro, which includes lecture notes, lunches and coffee breaks. The registration deadline is 1 April 1999.

A limited number of scholarships is offered by the EC to participants from the Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC) and from the European New Independent States (NIS). Application letters including a short CV should be sent directly to the responsible EC Scientific Officer (see below) before the registration deadline.
