The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Trieste, Italy) in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, Vienna, Austria) is jointly organizing the School of Nuclear Energy Management, to take place from 2 to 13 November 2015.
The purpose of this school is to provide a unique international educational experience aimed at building future leadership in managing nuclear energy programmes from among promising young professionals, particularly from newcomer countries that seek to develop nuclear power or other nuclear applications, who show promise as future leaders of the nuclear industry, academia and public sector entities. It will enable the transfer of IAEA specific knowledge to Member States towards their capacity building efforts.
The prospect of a continuing worldwide use of nuclear technologies – for electricity generation and electricity and applications in medicine, agriculture and industry, as well as the ageing cadres in the field points to the need for new cadre of nuclear professionals. A highly competent management is vital to the success at all stages of nuclear programmes.
The school will train young professionals from developing and developed countries with managerial potential on aspects of the industry to ensure their broad understanding of the current issues that need to be tackled in their countries.
The School will consist of a series of keynote presentations by leading IAEA specialists on topics relevant to managing nuclear energy programmes followed by practical sessions. All participants will be expected to be actively involved in discussions, assigned projects, panel reviews and other activities.
The following topics will be covered:
• World Energy Balance, Geopolitics and Climate Issues;
