Within the REDUPP project, young scientists will be trained and receive mentoring. The project will interact with PhD-students in associated networks, and provide a lecture series, and thus introduce students to the needs of the nuclear community in Europe. New knowledge which arises from the project will be communicated to a wider audience through a web page, newsletters and a final open meeting.
PhD students and early career reserchers at the participating institutions will be involved in the work through participation in the meetings, workshops and lecture series, as well as through collaboration which will lead to co-authorship of reports and articles.
The REDUPP Lecture Series is now finished. The following lectures have been held:
