The sCO2‐HeRo project has an educational purpose in response to the Euratom’s aim to act as a research and training programme. Students and PhD candidates visit the GfS and participate in tests and workshops with the glass model.

These tests and demonstrations at the glass model follow a double objective:

  • Illustrating the processes of decay heat removal within a power plant, and thus supporting the training program
  • Motivating students to consider the nuclear sector as promising for their future career. Empirically such excursions raise the interest of the students in the shown topic.


The sCO2-HeRo team from CVR organizes a sCO2-HeRo Workshop that will be held back to back with the sCO2 Summer School at CVR. The workshop is planned for 1st Sep 2017 and open to interested students from Europe and abroad.

Find here the sCO2-HeRo Workshop flyer. Please register for the Workshop until 21st of August under

The Summer School will take place in Rez, CZ, Aug 27th – Sep 1st, 2017, and focuses on the latest developments in the field of sCO2 cycle technology. The Summer School is open to all interested students.
