ESARDA at a Glance

ESARDA is an association of European organisations formed to advance and harmonise research and development in the area of safeguards. It also provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas between nuclear facility operators, safeguards authorities and persons engaged in research and development. ESARDA was formed in 1969 with the purpose of facilitating collaboration in R&D in the field of safeguards and in the application of such R&D to the safeguarding of source and special fissile materials.

Scientists and students from all countries which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA may attend. The School will be conducted in English; participants therefore must have adequate command of this language. Although the main purpose of the Centre is to help researchers from developing countries, through a programme of training activities within a framework of international cooperation, a limited number of students and post-doctoral scientists from developed countries are also welcome to attend.

As a rule, travel and subsistence expenses of the participants should be borne by their home institution. Every effort should be made by candidates to secure support for their fare (or at least half-fare). Limited funds are available for some participants who are nationals of, and working in, a developing country. Such support is available only for those who attend the entire School. There is no registration fee. Please note that daily attendance is compulsory for all participants and is a prerequisite for the certificate at the end of the course. This includes participation in the technical visit on the weekend.



Please remember that as a prerequisite to admission to the School, all applicants are asked to attach all IAEA e-learning certificates of completion (as pdf or jpg files) to the online application form for this School.
