TANDEM Summer School


24th June – 28th June 2024

Politecnico di Milano, Lecco Campus, Como lake, Italy

The TANDEM Summer School is organised by the TANDEM project. TANDEM is a European research project funded by the European Commission focusing on the study of an integrated vision of the energy system based on the hybridisation of nuclear and renewable sources with thermal and power storage and downstream application as district heating, hydrogen production, etc.

The TANDEM International Summer School is organised at the premises of Politecnico di Milano, in the city of Lecco – along the Como lake – in Italy from 24th June to June 28th, 2024. The Summer School is specifically conceived for MSc and PhD students, PostDocs, young and experienced researchers and engineers that are interested in deepening their knowledge on the potential role that nuclear hybrid energy systems play in the ongoing energy transition. In this context, particular attention will be devoted to explore the various advantages, as well as the safety concerns and the techno-economic challenges, associated with the integration of nuclear power plants with applications beyond conventional electricity generation. Participants will be provided with i) an extensive overview of the advantages and challenges of concepts of nuclear reactors producing commodities beyond power supply, ii) a training in the use of tools and methodologies essential for designing and simulating the operation of nuclear hybrid energy systems, iii) the quantitative skills necessary for assessing the impact of these systems within different contexts, ranging from a local scale to the global decarbonisation of the energy system. Given the specificity of the TANDEM Summer School, students are required to have a general background in nuclear systems and SMR technology.

Programme and registration details are available below. Please note that no registration fees are requested to participate to the school.

Save the dates in your calendar, we are looking forward to welcoming you to Lecco for the TANDEM Summer School!
