Summer School 2023

BESEP Summer School on Safety Engineering Practices

Time:  Tue Aug. 22 – Thu Aug. 24, 2023 (3 days)

Location: EDF Lab Chatou in Paris, France ( or see map below)

Description: The learning objective of BESEP summer school is to provide an introduction to deterministic and probabilistic safety analysis and human factors engineering, and how to use these in an efficient and integrated manner in safety engineering processes. The main concepts of different safety analyses are explained, as well as the interpretation and application of the concepts in an integrated safety assessment process for nuclear power plants. The lectures will be offered by international nuclear safety experts.

In addition to the lectures, the participants will be visiting a pop-up nuclear power plant located at the Chatou Impressionist island and open only for the three summer school days. The participants will be applying the things they have learned in the lectures to assess the situation. And frankly, the situation at the pop-up plant does not look good! Hopefully, the participants will be able to tell how to improve the situation to save the day.

Target audience: Advanced students and junior experts working in the field of nuclear safety.

Fees: BESEP summer school is supported by the European Commission and is free of charge for the participants. The participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
