This 2-week course in Prague offered during the winter term and led by Dr. George Moore, offers students the opportunity to attend lectures at the Department of Nuclear Reactors at the Czech Technical University (CTU), conduct experiments on the research reactor, and go on site visits. The practicum also included a trip to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria. Participants benefitted from the fact that many Institute alumni work at the IAEA, and also the office that the Institute's James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) has in Vienna, the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Nonproliferation (VCDNP).
