The ARCHER project is pleased to announce the first EUROCOURSE in Prague, Czech Republic, on 21-24 May at the Technical University. It will cover all main aspects of HTR technology as well as the main findings in ARCHER. The course is for students, PhD students and young professionals, free of charge.

The preliminary agenda, flyer and poster are available for download.

This first seminar aims to provide a basic overview of HTR designs, differences with other reactor types and, in the view of the inherent safety features of HTRs, the main phenomena of core physics and thermal hydraulics in the core. Fuel and material and components and the use of HTRs in cogeneration to avoid greenhouse gas release will be covered. The course includes three days of lectures mainly given by experts members in the project and a technical visit on the fourth day at the research center in REZ.

A poster competition will run parallel to the course. Participants are encouraged to present a poster related to the V/HTR technology.

The second course is planned for summer 2014.
