The NEMO (Nuclear Engineering MOdelling) research group has been created by a group of faculties of the Energy Deartment at Politecnico di Torino, sharing a common research interest in the various aspect of mathematical and numerical modelling, with a specific focus on the nuclear engineering field.

The NEMO staff has expertise in the fields of:

  • Physics and engineering of current and innovative fission nuclear systems
  • Deterministic and Monte Carlo methods for neutral and charged particles transport
  • Superconducting magnets and cryogeny for nuclear fusion reactors
  • Analysis of high thermal flux components in nuclear fusion reactors
  • Plasma-wall interactions in fusion reactors
  • Computational thermal Fluid Dynamics (CFD) applications to nuclear and solar systems
  • Probabilistic Risk Asssessment (PRA) and reliability analysis for fission and fusion plants

The NEMO group is involved in international research projects (e.g. H2020 and FP9 programs on nuclear fusion, MSR, and CSP), national and international collaborations and contracts.

NEW: IAEA Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme

In 2020, IAEA launched the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP) to increase the number of women in the nuclear field by providing scholarship to 100+ female students. To inspire and encourage young women to pursue a career in the nuclear field, IAEA awards annually up to 20000 € for tuition fees and up to 20000 € to cover the living costs for the selected students during their Master's programme. After graduation, the students are given the opportunity to pursue an internship at IAEA or in one of its partner organizations and industries.

If you are interested, contact us, and/or visit the dedicated page on the IAEA website.
