An ICTP-IAEA meeting in person

During this School, the IAEA and international experts will share their insights and experience to familiarize the participants with the basic concepts, methodology and tools for performing modelling, analysis and sustainability assessment of nuclear energy systems.

The International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO) was established within the IAEA in 2000, with the goal of ensuring a sustainable nuclear energy supply to help meet 21st century global energy needs. INPRO’s activities are centred on the key concepts of global nuclear energy sustainability and the development of long-range nuclear energy strategies, so that nuclear energy is and remains available to meet national energy needs.

The event aims to familiarize the participants with the concept and methodology for nuclear energy system (NES) sustainability assessment and provide theoretical and practical introductory training on INPRO tools for NES modelling and analysis. Young professionals working in the nuclear energy industry, researchers, students and lecturers from technical universities will benefit from a better understanding of the nuclear role in the long-term sustainability of energy production according to national priorities.

The School programme focuses on the following topics related to the sustainability of nuclear energy systems:
  • Energy planning and strategies for sustainable development
  • Planning for nuclear energy sustainability
  • Economics of nuclear power
  • Methodology for assessing the sustainability of nuclear energy systems (the INPRO Methodology)
  • Nuclear energy systems modelling and analysis
  • Methods and tools for modelling and analysis of nuclear energy systems
  • Role of technological and institutional innovations
  • Evolutionary and innovative reactor designs, including SMRs
  • Technological and national approaches for the nuclear fuel cycle
Poster: Applicants are encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster presentation, the priority will be given to those applicants who intend to present the poster.
