Training Course on Seismic Issues in NPPs

The training course on Seismic Issues in NPPs has been organized in the frame of SILER Project with the aim of giving a base of knowledge to deal with the issues of seismic behavior and risk mitigation in NPPs, with particular attention to lead cooled systems. The training course was addressed to PhD students and researchers active in the field

The course was held in Verona on May 21-25th, 2012.
