Dissemination and advertisement through ENEN


We are pleased to announce the H2020-ARIEL "HISPANOS Hands-On school on the production, detection and use of neutron beams" that will be held at the Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (CNA) in Seville, Spain. 

The school, organized by the Universidad de Sevilla in the framework of the H2020 ARIEL project (, aims at covering the experimental aspects related to the production, detection and use of neutron beams. To this purpose, the core of the school consists of  a series of experiments that will be carried out (September, 26th to 30th) at the HiSPANoS facility at the Centro Nacional de Aceleradores (CNA) in Seville, Spain

  • Introduction to detectors, acquisition systems and data analysis. 
  • Time-of-flight experiments using fast pulsed neutron beams and detectors providing pulse shape discrimination. 
  • Neutron capture MACS measurements by activation using an epithermal neutron beam. 
  • Neutron radiography with thermal neutrons via full moderation of an initially fast neutron beam. 
  • Study of the neutron distribution from fission with the miniBELEN detector. 

The experiments will be complemented with a selected number of lectures (Interaction of neutrons with matter, production of neutron beams and detection of neutrons) and seminars (The role of neutrons in astrophysics, nuclear technology, medicine and related experiments) that will be given online during two days (September, 21st and 22nd) in the week prior to the on-site experiments.  

The target audience comprises young researchers, which can be Master or PhD students as well as young postdocs; with the number of participants lmited to 24. The registration, travel and accommodation costs will be fully covered by the H2020 ARIEL project.


Announcement: "NUDATAPATH - 1st international on-line school on nuclear data: the path from the detector to the reactor calculation".

The school is organised by CIEMAT in the framework of the H2020 ARIEL project (

The goal of the school is to provide to PhD students and young researchers a global overview of the complete nuclear data cycle, starting from the definition of the nuclear data, going through the definition of priorities and target accuracies, needs and conduction of new experiments, experimental data analysis and evaluation of the disseminated nuclear data, and ending with the validation with integral experiments. Experts in the different topics will guide the students through this exciting field through a series of theory seminars and hands-on lectures. In this way, students will learn the relevant theoretical concepts and be able run remote calculations such as sensitivity analyses, perform virtual cross section measurements and data analyses and data validations based on integral experiments.

The school is targeted to young researchers, including advanced Master or PhD students and also young postdocs. The selection of the 24 participants is the responsibility of the International Advisory Committee and will be based on the CV and the motivation letter to be attached to the registration form.

The school is on-line and thus a reasonable computer and a good internet connection will be required. The lectures will be taught in morning sessions over a period of 2 weeks, from the 21st of February till the 4th of March 2022.

The applications have to be done via the School web site and the deadline will be the 1st of November.
