CETS includes hands-on-training at the Budapest Research Reactor facilities and it is targeted at members of the European Community with special focus on the Central European region.

The aim of this course is to provide insight into neutron scattering techniques (small-angle neutron scattering, three-axis spectroscopy, neutron reflectometry, prompt gamma activation analysis, neutron diffraction, time-of-flight spectroscopy and neutron radiography) and their application for studies on structure and dynamics of condensed matter. Participants will also gain experimental skills and guidance in data evaluation/interpretation will be provided. The school is a forum for the presentation and discussion of research work by young scientists. We welcome graduate and PhD students as well as newcomers to neutron research from the fields of structural research in physics, chemistry and biology. For young scientists and students, grants are available to cover registration fee, travel (on reduced rates) and accommodation.

The training consists of five days of tutorial lectures given by renowned lecturers from European centers like ILL, ISIS, HZB. The lectures are followed by experimental works at the instruments to introduce students to the art of utilization of instruments at a large-scale facility. Students will get acquainted with sample preparation, experiment planning and running as well as data processing and interpretation of results. The number of participants is limited to 30-35 (restricted by the training facilities available).
