ACTINET Summer Schools

The TALISMAN project plans to organise an annual international summer school in actinide sciences using expertise among the whole network but also invited international experts with the aim of providing a bridging culture between the usually highly specialised approaches and challenges in associated or related fields.

Support to students

The project plans also to support students attendance to international conference, workshops, seminars or schools selected by the TALISMAN Consortium. The support to the students will be implemented through the direct attribution of travel grants to TALISMAN consortium students following periodic calls for proposal or by supporting to the organisation of the conference that will grant the students. The selection will be made by the ExCom.

The ThUL School 2015 in Actinide Chemistry

The ThUL school 2015 within TALISMAN took place September 28 – October 2 in Karlsruhe at the training facility FTU at KIT Campus North. The overall number of particpants was 30 from both theory and experiments including master students, graduate students, post-docs, staff from research facilities and speakers. The lectures covered relativistic quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, effective core potentials, multi-configurational methods, EXAFS, and magnetic properties. As lecturers we could win Saue (Toulouse), Vallet (Lille), Joly (Grenoble), Patzschke (Dresden), Kerridge (Lancaster), Chilton (Manchester), Weigand (Cologne) and Ikeda (Rossendorf) and local speakers from KIT-INE who presented the current research activities. Computer exercises including an introduction to software were given for the packages ADT, ORCA and FDMNES. The lab tour this year was a guited visit to the KIT synchrotron facility ANKA. The ThUL School 2015 further included a poster session, a school dinner and an excursion to the technical museum in Speyer.
