CONCERT sponsors short courses
CONCERT sponsors short courses on research into radiation risks and radiation protection.
CONCERT is a Euratom-funded European Joint Programme set up to promote and integrate European research into the risks and protection from exposure to ionising radiation. CONCERT is promoting education and training in support of the research programme and making more widely available training opportunities in order to help attract top-level students into the field.
The courses to be held in 2016 are:
- 18-29 April

There will be no course fee. There will also be some limited support for accommodation costs at most of the participating institutions. CONCERT courses will be open to any postgraduate student or researcher interested in a research career in the scientific disciplines related to radiation protection. Students outside EU can be accepted if there is space. The admission will be decided case by case.
