SAMOSAFER builds on the results of the SAMOFAR project

SAMOSAFER School on Molten Salt Reactor

From September - December 2021, SAMOSAFER is organising an MSR School that will teach you all about the main areas of active research in MSR technology.

The SAMOSAFER School on Molten Salt Reactor will be held ONLINE during the fall of 2021. The school addresses all the main fields of active research on MSR technology, coherently with the scopes of the SAMOSAFER project.

The school is offered to Master and PhD students, as well as young professionals in the field of nuclear engineering and technology.

The school is composed by 7 modules (3h each), which will be given in a distributed mode between September and December 2021. Each module is composed by:

  • a basic lecture, providing a common background to the whole audience,
  • an advanced lecture, research-focused and strongly linked to SAMOSAFER activities,
  • an interactive session, allowing students to challenge themselves against relevant problems for MSRs.

The subjects of the seven modules and corresponding time schedule are:

  • Module 1 – MSR Neutronics: first half of September 2021
  • Module 2 – MSR Thermal hydraulics: second half of September 2021
  • Module 3 – MSR Multiphysics: first half of October 2021
  • Module 4 – MSR Thermo-chemistry: second half of October 2021
  • Module 5 – MSR Design: first half of November 2021
  • Module 6 – MSR Operation & control: second half of November 2021
  • Module 7 – MSR Safety: first half of December 2021

Students enrolled in the school will be provided by the end of the school with a capstone project, connected to the contents of the school, to be independently developed and presented at the Young MSR Conference foreseen in 2022 (hopefully in presence).
