TRAKULA (transmutationsrelevante kernphysikalische Untersuchungen langlebiger Aktinide) is a joint research project of "Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung" (BMBF) about nuclear physics investigations with modern technological and numerical methods.

The proposal named "Transmutationsrelevante kernphysikalische Untersuchungen mit Einsatz moderner technologischer und numerischer Methoden" was approved by BMBF and the project started on 01/10/2009.

A central topic of the project are experiments concerning the transmutation of radioactive waste.


The final graduate seminar took place from 25. to 27. February 2013 in Bad Honnef.
