Doctoral Education Network – DENSE

The Doctoral Education Network under SAFER2028, dubbed as DENSE, invites all doctoral students in the nuclear energy field to participate, regardless of their home organisation and funding source. DENSE acts as an integral part of the SAFER2028 research programme, with funding from the National Nuclear Waste Management Fund VYR.

The funding of DENSE is divided into operational funding, with a strong emphasis on networking and international collaboration, and direct salary funding. The operational funding supports targeted scientific activities, training and networking of all doctoral students in the network.

Further information of the features of the network and funding principles can be found in the Framework Plan Chapter 3 as well as in the DENSE poster that was displayed at SAFIR2022/KYT2022 Final Seminar (see links beside or below).
