This course will focus on disseminating the knowledge gained on Severe Accident in the last two decades to Masters-PhD students, young engineers and researchers recently involved in Severe Accident. It will be hosted by the INSTN at CEA-Cadarache, near Aix-en-Provence (France). This short course is a sequel to the previous Ljubljana 2017 and Stockholm 2015 SARNET Courses.
The program will cover severe accident phenomenology, progression and mitigation in current water-cooled (Light Water Reactor and Heavy Water Reactor) Gen. II and III Nuclear Power Plants (NPP), but also the different design solutions in Gen. III NPPs. A special focus will be done on the Fukushima-Daiichi Severe Accident. Compared to the previous editions, this edition of the SAP course will include lectures addressing the specific phenomenology, management, research and simulation of Severe Accidents in Heavy Water reactors. These lectures will be performed by Indian experts from the Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI).
The course will be open to University students with a discount fee. The course can contribute for 3 ECTS (with written work) as an advanced course for Masters students (through the European Nuclear Education Network - ENEN).

The network of excellence SARNET (Severe Accident Research NETwork of excellence) was launched in 2004, in the context of the European Commission's 6th PCRD, and was then extended until 2013 in the context of the 7th PCRD. Since mid-2013, the network has been integrated into NUGENIA (NUclear GENeration II & III Association), an international body whose mission is to coordinate all European research on generation II and III reactors. However, the SARNET network's success is now recognised beyond the confines of Europe, with several new partners (from Poland, Canada, Japan, and elsewhere) who are now contributing to its activities, and other parties are still expressing their interest on a regular basis. SARNET’s key objectives are:
SARNET is now open to any NUGENIA member, but other organisations may attend certain events, such as the Severe Accident Phenomenology (SAP) 2019 course.
This SAP 2019 course is a part of the Excellence Spreading activities of SARNET and it will focus on disseminating the knowledge gained on SA in the last two decades to Masters-PhD students, engineers and scientists recently involved in Severe Accident.
