WINS Webinar on Sustaining the Next Generation of Nuclear Security Professionals

15 February 2023 - 15 February 2023 Online, Public Event (Registration required)
Workshop on autonomous and remotely operated systems: Benefits and challenges to nuclear security

Background

The registration process will close on 8 February 2023.

Governments around the world are considering nuclear energy as an effective technology to mitigate climate change and decarbonise the economy. Nuclear energy is seen as an opportunity to make a feasible energy transition in combination with renewable energy. There is a significant increase of countries considering the construction of new nuclear power plants and a wide range of countries evaluating the expansion of their nuclear power programmes. In the same way, extensive progress has been made in the development of new technologies such advanced modular reactors including microreactors, which may play a main role in energy accessibility in certain regions of the world. Considering the current nuclear landscape, young professionals are game changers who will play an important role as future leaders, decision makers, policy implementers, workforce, and nuclear operators in the evolving and challenging nuclear and energy sector. At the same time, the nuclear workforce is gradually being replaced as many staff reach retirement.

Objectives

This webinar aims to analyse from a holistic point of view the ways young professionals can contribute to the future of nuclear security, particularly on knowledge transfer and the challenges and barriers that may jeopardise their full and effective participation in the sector.

Audience

The main target audience of this initiative is:

  • Regulators
  • Operators
  • Academia
  • Government officials
  • Young professionals preferably working at nuclear security
  • International and non-governmental organisations
  • Influencers and digital activists

Female practitioners from diverse backgrounds and people with diverse gender identities will be strongly encouraged to apply.

Process

Invited world-class experts will share their views, thoughts and visions regarding young professional development and the future of nuclear security.
