Training on Nuclear Chemistry and Physics at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences

The RADIUM project has initiated its work package 2 “Knowledge Transfer for the Belarusian personnel” with a training on Nuclear Chemistry and Physics.

This activity, which took place from the 12th to 16th July 2021 at Mannheim University for Applied Sciences, has finished with great success and satisfaction. Fifteen Belarusian professors from Polotsk State University (PSU), Belarusian State University (BSU), Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno (YKSUG) & Francisk Skorina State University (GSU) participated with great enthusiasm and interest in the online training. The course showed how theoretical basics can be presented to students and how laboratory courses are carried out empirically at Mannheim University. Videos, real-time executions and experiments’ evaluations were shown and will be made available for use. Half a day of training was organized by a representative of the company Westinghouse Electric COMPANY LLC, which is also an associated partner of the project.

During the training, the latest developments in the field of nuclear safety in the creation and operation of nuclear power plants were discussed, as well as the possible effect of ionizing radiation on humans and environment. Particular attention was paid to the modelling of physical processes which occur during nuclear interactions. The evaluation of the training showed a very productive and fruitful week despite the online format of the training.

All Belarusian partners stated that the knowledge they gained during the training will certainly be very useful as they work on the preparations of their own training courses for the RADIUM Master in Radiation protection and Nuclear Safety.
