PHD4GEN High Temperature Reactors Summer School

June 1 - June 5

GEMINI+ Summer School

In collaboration with the GEMINI+ project, the PHD4GEN High Tempearture Reactors Summer School will be organised from 1-5 June 2020, in Kazimierz Dolny (Poland).  

Due to the current situation, the School can be fully attended remotely. The aim of this School is to present the current status of the Generation IV reactors under study of the program “New reactor concepts and safety analyses for the Polish Nuclear Energy Program” (POWR.03.02.00-00-I0005/17-00).



·         Generation IV reactor technologies, overview, safety and economic aspects
·         HTGR technology and concepts; design, legal aspects and licensing of HTRs
·         DSA and PSA for HTRs
·         DFR concept and Pyrochemical Processing Unit (PPU)
·         Spent fuel utilisation and transmutation
·         Public reception of Generation IV reactors
