Since last year, Chalmers University of Technology is coordinating the research and innovation project Cortex to improve nuclear power safety. On 18-21 June 2018, about 30 young researchers from Europe, the US and Asia took part in a summer course at Chalmers, organised by Professor Christophe Demazière
The topic was reactor dynamics with a focus on nuclear safety. About half of the participants were on-site, at the Department of Physics at Chalmers. The other participants took part in the activities via distance education, thanks to a multimedia room at the department. In addition, an innovative pedagogical format relying on flipped classrooms and adapted to both the on-site and off-site audiences was used throughout the course.
