Since 2004, the School of Nuclear Knowledge Management (NKM School) has been jointly organized by The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). PURPOSE: The School is a certificate course aiming to provide specialized education and training on development and implementation of knowledge management programmes in nuclear science and technology organizations. FOCUS: The School focuses on methodologies and practices, and explores various dimensions of NKM such as processes and tools, challenges and benefits, culture influence, relationship with human resource development, information technology for knowledge preservation and sharing, etc. Learning is supplemented with real life examples, good practices and lessons learned from NKM programmes in different types of nuclear organizations. The aim is to encourage ‘forward thinking’ and to enable participants to apply theory and insights directly in their workplace. TOPICS: The main topics of the School are: • Nuclear Knowledge and Knowledge Management Fundamentals; • Developing Policies and Strategies in Managing Nuclear Knowledge; • Managing Nuclear Information Resources; • Human Resources Development, Risk of Knowledge Loss and Knowledge Transfer; • Practical Guidance and Best practices on NKM.
