Capacity building for the regional project of the South East European International Institute for Sustainable Technologies (SEEIIST) is one of the key elements for its successful implementation.

 The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) expressed its readiness to provide the first financial support for the Capacity Building through the Department of Technical Cooperation. The Call for the first three IAEA Fellows is now open.

According to the SEEIIST Concept Study ‘A Facility for Tumour Therapy and Biomedical Research in South-Eastern Europe’ published as a CERN Yellow Report (CERN-2019-002, U. Amaldi et al.) the training will mainly consist of two parts:

  • Grant fellowships for young people to be sent to European laboratories to obtain education and training as scientists or engineers in various special fields; and
  • Organisation of workshops, schools, seminars other related training activities for future users.

Two types of fellowships offered:
