50+ Years of TRIGA Research at ATI
On the 7th of March 1962, was the first criticality of our TRIGA Mark II research reactor at the Atominstitut. In the last year, the TRIGA reactor was refurbished through an exchange of its core. Rejuvenated, it is in full operation now, the research projects have started again, and the first student lab course has already been carried out. Thanks to this modernisation, we are confident to continue our active role in science and education in the various fields covered by the members of our institute.
It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 50+ anniversary of the Atominstitut and our 'Prater Reactor'. On March 6th we start with a TU Forum. On March 7th 2013, the 51st anniversary of the first criticality of our reactor, we celebrate the last 50+ years of successful science and education at the Atominstitut with a Symposium, an official anniversary celebration, and a 50+ party. A preliminary program is attached.
We are looking forward to see you at the Atominstitut, for our 50+ year celebration and outlook into the next decades.
We would like to ask you to register for the Symposium and the official anniversary celebration at our web page.
On behalf of all the personnel at the Atominstitut
