The goal of our summer school is to familiarise the participants with the challenges and open-ended questions of nuclear power production. This topic is especially relevant currently due to the global energy crisis. The target audience of our event are primarily physics students, and for this reason fusion energy production is going to be the focus, but we are also planning lectures regarding the problems and future of fission energy production.
