Training

Training of young professionals (including PhD/PostDocs and trainees) is crucial for the PREDIS project. The implementation of training activities allows newcomers and new generations to acquire the level of knowledge needed to develop a professional career in the different subjects related to the predisposal of radioactive waste.

All training activities developed in the framework of PREDIS and those not developed by the project but of interest to the PREDIS community are included in this webpage. Note that PREDIS also organises webinars.
