WINS Alumni Webinar Discussion Forum on New Nuclear Technologies - a Nuclear Security Conversation with Industry Experts

12 October 2022 - 12 October 2022 Online, Public Event (Registration required)
Workshop on autonomous and remotely operated systems: Benefits and challenges to nuclear security

Background

Want to know more about new Nuclear Technologies for carbon net zero energy production?

Are these new technologies secure and safe?

How do these Technologies mitigate threats?

Then register for this exciting discussion forum.

With a continued focus on global climate change and increasing energy costs, there is the need to invest, develop and introduce new technologies for the reduction of Co2 emissions to achieve global targets. The current civil nuclear energy sector is recognised and as a safe, secure and reliable source of providing low carbon energy. With increasing global demands on energy, can nuclear continue to be considered as part of the energy mix and should more countries step into the fold and make nuclear energy a sustainable commitment for the future?

Objectives

The aim of this webinar is to discuss with experts from the nuclear sector ‘what is being done within the nuclear sector to develop new technologies for carbon net zero energy production’ and to be able to discuss and ask questions about how the safety and security of these new technologies will be maintained and regulated and give confidence to their introduction and global expansion.

Our speacial guests for the webinar are:

  • Mr John Barrett D., ICD.D, President of Portolan Global Inc. and WINS Board Member;
  • Ms Gabriela Acosta, the Head of the Non-Proliferation Policies Division at the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (ARN) of Argentina;
