AINSE Winter School 2018 | 2 July - 6 July

We had the pleasure of hosting 59 students from 38 AINSE Member Universities and 4 AINSE Member Organisations. The school included a mixture of lectures, experimental sessions and demonstrations, as well as an active social program.

For twenty two years the Winter School has successfully connected nuclear science and engineering with the broader scientific and engineering community, introduced students to the notion of further research through ANSTO and AINSE, and established a basis for students to become future leaders in the field of nuclear engineering and science.

A big THANK YOU to our AINSE PGRA Winter School volunteers, and to all the ANSTO Staff that volunteered their time, making the Winter School another great success. We couldn’t have done it without you!
