VII International School on Spent Nuclear Fuel Management of Power Reactor
September 2 - September 6
Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) management is a core issue for sustainable development and long-term viability of nuclear energy as energy supply. The main objective of this school is to disseminate the knowledge on the Integrated approach to the formation of the Closed Nuclear Fuel Cycle through the fulfillment of mutual requirements from Front End and Back End technologies.
The VII International School on Spent Nuclear Fuel Management of Power Reactors for Young Professionals is organized by State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom” in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in the Russian Federation. This one-week education & training event is a unique international educational experience aimed at building future leadership competencies essential to support the development of national spent nuclear fuel management programmes. This School is focused on specific features of SNF management in advanced nuclear fuel cycles and oriented to young professionals with managerial potential from the IAEA Member States, to provide them with a comprehensive understanding of key issues and challenges associated with Spent Nuclear Fuel Management and Integrated Approach to the Back End of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle.
- Issues of nuclear fuel cycles based on reprocessed materials;
- Energy planning to support the advanced NFC development;
- Usage specifics of nuclear fuels based on reprocessed
materials in thermal reactors;
