EXTEND - European school on EXperiments, Theory and Evaluation of Nuclear Data
The first European school on EXperiment, Theory and Evaluation of Nuclear Data (EXTEND) was held in Budapest, Hungary, September 1-12, 2008. This was one of the results of the EU FP6 project CANDIDE, aiming to provide a dedicated training course on nuclear data for young professionals.
UU continues to organize the EXTEND summer school in close collaboration with BME, Budapest.
The target group of this course are young professionals, like PhD students and recently employed staff in industry and at research centres.
Summer schools in nuclear engineering (e.g., the FREDERIC JOLIOT - OTTO HAHN SUMMER SCHOOL, and, previously, the EUGENE WIGNER SCHOOL) are regularly organized, and there are relatively frequent summer schools on fundamental nuclear physics. Up to now, however, there are few initiatives to bridge these two communities with a nuclear data school. EXTEND is aiming at bridging this gap. This course provides a meeting place for young professionals in corporate industry, research centres and academic research, aiming at fostering improved connections between these types of organizations. In addition, EXTEND will put emphasis on being a meeting place of the long-established and new EU member states.
The 2012 edition of EXTEND is going to be held during
September 17 - 28, 2012
in Budapest, Hungary.
The school is organized within the FP7 EU project ANDES (Accurate Nuclear Data for nuclear Energy Sustainability).
