    The joint ICTP-IAEA International School on Nuclear Security announces a two-week international school designed for young professionals from developing countries, ideally with 1 to 3 years of experience, working in relevant institutions in their country. The school provides an intensive, up-to-date overview of nuclear security. Candidates should have specific professional interests or knowledge in nuclear security, although academic and technical experience may vary. Candidates with a scientific or technical background in disciplines such as nuclear physics, nuclear engineering, international relations, law enforcement, or related fields are especially encouraged to apply.

    The school will consist of a series of lectures and practical exercises designed to incorporate the knowledge gained into national planning and procedures for protecting against nuclear security threats. There will be a technical visit to show participants some detection equipment and its applications.

    As a prerequisite for participating in the selection process, all candidates are asked to complete at least 8 of the 21 existing IAEA nuclear security e-learning modules based on their selection. Link to all e-learning modules:
