The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

IAEA funding school for developing countries’ “nuclear leaders”

More young professionals qualify as future nuclear leaders: 2017 Japan-IAEA Joint Nuclear Energy Management School“……….On the margins of the School, the IAEA signed Practical Arrangements with the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), the Japan Atomic Industrial Forum (JAIF), and the JAIF International Cooperation Center (JICC). The Practical Arrangements formalize cooperation in the area of nuclear human resource development, including knowledge management, education, training and outreach. The JAEA, JAIF and JICC serve as secretariats of the Japan Nuclear Human Resource Development Network and also collaborate with the IAEA as the NEM School organizers, together with the National Institute of Technology, Fukushima College and the University of Tokyo.

Background The NEM School was launched in 2010 in cooperation with the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy. The purpose of the School is to help address the need for an expanded global cadre of nuclear professionals, brought about by the increased worldwide interest in the use of nuclear technologies – from electricity generation to medical, agricultural and industrial uses. Since then, besides the annual NEM School hosted in Trieste, regional schools have been conducted in the UAE, Japan, the USA, South Africa and Russian Federation, benefitting more than 600 students from all over the world. The NEM School enables the transfer of IAEA-specific knowledge to Member States, furthering their capacity building efforts.

The NEM School focuses mainly on training of young professionals with managerial potential from developing countries on the different aspects of the nuclear energy sector. …..https://www.iaea.org/newscenter/news/more-young-professionals-qualify-as-future-nuclear-leaders-2017-japan-iaea-joint-nuclear-energy-management-school
