B How do atomic nuclei interact?

C What uses do atomic nuclei have?

D How are the properties of atomic nuclei measured?

E What is there beyond atomic nuclei?


2. To promote scientific knowledge and exchange between nuclear physics doctoral students across the country.

3. To provide access to the research phase of Nuclear Physics doctoral programmes.

4. To promote collaboration between Spanish Nuclear Physics research groups, both in relation to teaching under the Master's Degree course and other teaching, academic or research aspects.

5. To optimise human and material resources across the country in order to achieve a nuclear physics master's degree programme of the highest possible standard.

6. To facilitate incorporation in highly qualified job positions in both academic and non-academic fields, including administration, information and communication technology, finance and nuclear medicine firms.
