Nuclear Corrosion Summer School – NuCoSS-23

July 2, 2023 - July 7, 2023

This is the third edition of such a summer school and it is organized by Working Party 4 'Nuclear Corrosion' of the European Federation of Corrosion. The summer school is primarily intended for people from nuclear authorities, industry and research organizations who would like to get a comprehensive overview on the field of nuclear corrosion. The program is designed in a way that networking and a knowledge transfer from experienced experts to the 'young generation' is facilitated. Internationally renowned experts (e.g., F. Scenini, D. Engelberg, R. Kilian, H.P. Seifert, R.-W. Bosch, P. Efsing, J. Noël, L. Martinelli, S. Ritter) will give lectures on the following topics (the program will be available at a later stage):

  • Electrochemistry and corrosion (incl. hands-on experiments)
  • Overview on corrosion in the nuclear cycle
  • Corrosion in light water reactor plants (incl. monitoring & mitigation aspects and a focus on environmentally-assisted cracking)
  • Corrosion in nuclear waste disposals
  • Corrosion in Gen IV systems
  • Case studies and ageing management
  • Advanced techniques to characterize corrosion

Please note: Two student grants offering free access to the school are sponsored by the EFC! More information and the application form can be found here.
