About the School

Welcome to the NOMATEN School.

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to participate in the NOMATEN Winter School.

The third international CoE NOMATEN School will be held on November 28-30, 2023, at the National Centre for Nuclear Research in Otwock. It will be devoted to understanding the functional properties of materials for industrial applications and novel radiopharmaceuticals for medical applications. CoE NOMATEN School is an internal collaboration event organized annually by different NOMATEN consortium partners (NCBJ, CEA, VTT). It enables team members to exchange knowledge and ideas on new developments and industrial solutions within the NOMATEN project. It is a platform for young scientists to meet with colleagues from other countries and an opportunity to build and strengthen ties between all three nuclear-oriented research institutions.

The preliminary program of the Winter School 2023 includes topics related to the synthesis of new materials, modeling of materials deformation and radiation damage build-up, as well as material characterization and advanced solutions in radiopharmaceuticals and medical therapies. A rich program has been planned for the participants of the NOMATEN Winter School, including participation in plenary presentations and thematic sessions realized by experienced researchers, as well as sessions for young scientists and poster sessions. The last day will also include presentations of large scientific infrastructures built over past years at NCBJ (Polfel, Neutron diffractometer facility in MARIA Reactor dedicated to structural analysis of materials) and visits to newly established NCBJ Laboratories, including the Materials Research Laboratory, the XRay Lab, and the SEM & TEM Microscopy Laboratories. In parallel to NOMATEN Winter School, participants will also learn about theoretical and practical methods of intellectual property protection and patenting new scientific solutions as part of the intellectual property rights and protection training, which experts from CEA and VTT will conduct.

The NOMATEN 2023 Winter School is an ideal event for young scientists and PhD students of CoE NOMATEN who want to master basic and advanced materials preparation and characterization methods used in materials engineering. Participants will also learn how to prepare new radiopharmaceuticals and verify the interaction processes of this type of drug with living cells and tissues. The speeches will be delivered by experienced CoE NOMATEN scientists and guests from other Polish scientific institutions (e.g., Warsaw University of Technology, Medical University of Warsaw) who are experts in materials engineering, solid-state physics, and pharmacy. The expected number of participants is approximately 50 people.
