YTERA – Ydintekniikan ja radiokemian tohtoriohjelma
Doctoral Programme for Nuclear Engineering and Radiochemistry
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.
The fourth annual seminar to be held at Haikko Manor, Porvoo, May 18-19, 2015
The fourth annual seminar of YTERA doctoral programme will be held at Haikko Manor in Porvoo on May 18-19, 2015. You are advised to make a calendar reservation for it already now. More information will be distributed in due time.
If interested in giving a presentation at the seminar, please contact the coordinator of YTERA.
Positions filled for finalizing the doctoral thesis
Open positions for finalizing the doctoral thesis in YTERA were announced in December 2014. These positions were exclusively meant for YTERA associate members working at other organizations but universities and close to graduation.
The steering group of YTERA received four applications for the positions. After a thorough evaluation all applicants were found well eligible for this pilot financing plan. The steering group decided to make an offer to each applicant: Emmi Myllykylä, Veli-Matti Pulkkanen, Topias Siren and Eveliina Takasuo.
