An ICTP-IAEA Meeting
The two-week School is designed for early career professionals from developing countries, ideally with 1-3 years of experience and working at relevant institutions in their home countries. The school provides an intense contemporary overview of nuclear security. Candidates should have a specific career interest in or knowledge of nuclear security, although academic and technical backgrounds may vary.

A technical visit will be conducted to show the participants some detection equipment and their applications.
