ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Education, Training & Workforce Development
The Education, Training & Workforce Development Division provides communication among the academic, industrial, and governmental communities through the exchange of views and information on matters related to education, training and workforce development in nuclear and radiological science, engineering, and technology. Industry leaders, education and training professionals, and interested students work together through Society-sponsored meetings and publications, to enrich their professional development, to educate the general public, and to advance nuclear and radiological science and engineering.

JET is a large experimental Tokamak which has been constructed during the last 5 years by a European “Joint Undertaking” with the objective of studying the behaviour of plasma of a size and in conditions approaching those needed in a reactor. The experimental programme planned for 1983 — 1990, is based on a build-up of effective plasma heating to 10 MW of Neutral Beam plus 15 MW of R.F. power. Towards the end of this programme, D-T plasmas will be used, and the design and construction of the buildings and equipment incorporate suitable shielding and provision for remote-handling.
