Top level teachers from the IAEA - Vienna, EURATOM – Luxembourg, AREVA - France, British Nuclear Group – Great Britain, national regulatory bodies from EU, high class EU and US research centres and Universities together with ESARDA assure the quality of the programme. A comprehensive overview of safeguards and non-proliferation matters in Europe and abroad is provided covering scientific, technical, legal, and some political aspects.
