The school is a certificate course providing a unique international education aimed at building future leadership to manage nuclear energy programmes. It is intended for promising young professionals from the nuclear industry and academia, including those from developing countries.

Jointly organized by ICTP and the IAEA since 2010, this Nuclear Energy Management (NEM) School focuses on broadening the young professional’s understanding of current issues in the nuclear industry, generating awareness on recent developments in nuclear energy and sharing international perspectives on issues related to the peaceful use of nuclear technology. Over 30 experts from the IAEA and the nuclear industry deliver more than 70 presentations and case studies. Technical visits to nuclear facilities form an essential practical element of the curriculum and students are asked to work on special projects relevant to the development of nuclear energy programmes. Participants will be selected based on an online pre- training course and a test.
