Abstract: The Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM) of the European Joint Research Centre (JRC) is equipped with a unique scientific infrastructure for highly accurate neutron cross-section measurements. It is a combination of a 150 MeV linear electron accelerator with neutron time-of-flight facility and a 7 MV light-ion Van de Graaff accelerator. The complementary research capabilities offered at the two accelerators create excellent opportunities for training. The institute hosts a number of PhD and post-doctoral fellows, visiting scientists and trainees every year. To respond to demands from the educational world the institute organises several hands-on training courses at university level. These regular training courses have the objective to initiate graduate or post-graduate students into the nuclear data field via exciting experiments at the appropriate level. This paper describes the neutron data facilities and nuclear training activities more in detail.
