Description
The School is a certificate course providing  specialized education and training on development  and implementation of knowledge management  programmes in nuclear science and technology  organizations. It is intended for young professionals in  current or future leading roles in managing nuclear  knowledge.


Description:
Jointly organized by ICTP and the IAEA since 2004,  this Nuclear Knowledge Management (NKM) School  focuses on methodologies and practices, and  explores various dimensions of nuclear knowledge  management. These include processes and  tools, challenges and benefits, culture influence,  relationship with human resource development, IT  for knowledge preservation and sharing. Learning  is supplemented with real life examples 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 in their daily work. Pre-training is  done via e-learning for a common understanding  of the basics, allowing a more efficient interaction  with peers and lecturers during the in-class  School. Lectures at the ICTP by recognized experts  are followed by case studies, practical work and  breakout sessions where participants will have the  opportunity to discuss issues and solutions. NKM  group projects are also developed over the week.
Shortlisted candidates will undergo an on-line  pre-training course and a test, the results of which  will be one of the  elements to define the final list of participants.


Topics:

•  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 good practices on NKM.


Methodologies:

•  Blended learning course;
•  Oriented to practical exercises and group projects;
•  Additional continuous education certificate  provided by MEPhI University, Russian 
  Federation, after successful completion.
