YTERA logo

Academy of Finland has granted funding for a new Doctoral Programme for Nuclear Engineering and Radiochemistry, YTERA, during 2012-2015. Since the utilisation of nuclear energy will considerably increase in Finland, the purpose of the programme is to educate researchers and experts for the need of universities, industry and authorities.

The programme is coordinated by Aalto University and it is carried out in partnership with the University of Helsinki and Lappeenranta University of Technology. The programme involves close collaboration with Finnish research bodies (VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland), industry (Fennovoima, Fortum, Posiva, TVO), and authorities (Ministry of Employment and the Economy, Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority) that deal with nuclear energy generation.
