Nachwuchsförderung

Within the module Education and Training (EDU), a number of inter- and transdisciplinary formats are carried out in TRANSENS. One focus is on the (interdisciplinary) co-production of knowledge by young scientists from different disciplines, as well as on the (transdisciplinary) inclusion of the population and stakeholders in the process of knowledge production. Accordingly, the offers are mainly - but not exclusively! - to TRANSENS project participants.

  • Within the framework of TRANSENS there is the possibility to acquire an additional qualification within the framework of a college , which will be certified by the project if passed.

    Content: Disciplinary basics regarding final disposal, as well as focus on transdisciplinary work in the final disposal issue.

    Target groups: PhD students. Post-docs. Researchers.

    The events are - as far as possible -open toall researchers beyond the participants of the Kolleg, i.e. they can also be attended individually and separately from the Kolleg.

    The lecture series and the case study are the core events of the research training group. At least one course from each of the other three modules must be attended in order to successfully complete the course. A total of at least 18 points should be achieved.

    If you as an external visitor are interested in one of the courses listed here, please contact the person responsible for the module by mail (see contact).

  • The TRANSENS lecture series spans over 2 semesters of 2 SWS from the technical basics to the ethical, socio-ecological, economic, legal and political implications of the search for a suitable site for the final disposal of highly radioactive waste. While the first semester focuses on the technical fundamentals as well as selected socio-technical aspects of nuclear power, the second semester deals with the site selection process on a very broad scientific basis and from different scientific perspectives. The lecture series is initially aimed at students from the universities participating in the TRANSENS project.

    Dates

    The TRANSENS lecture series will take place in the winter semester 2021/2022 and summer semester 2022 every Tuesday 14:15-15:45 as an online event via zoom. Please refer to the following table for topics and current dates. For participation and recognition within the EDU-College a registration is required. Please send your registration by e-mail to Prof. Clemens Walther; walther@irs.uni-hannover.de.

    Registration

    Registration for the winter semester is now open via stud-ip here. External guests without Stud-ip access must first apply for temporary access. To do so, please send an e-mail with your full name and a valid e-mail address to schulz@irs.uni-hannover.de. Please also write a short sentence about your relation to the topic of disposal and your interest in the lecture in the email. This will help us in our research to get an overview of the different groups of people interested and participating in the topic of final disposal.
