Sustainable development of human civilization, preservation of the natural balance of our planet largely depend on ensuring access of mankind to modern environmentally safe and reliable energy sources. We are talking about low-carbon and, above all, nuclear energy as one of the most important components of the world energy balance. But nuclear technologies mean not only the production of electricity, they can become real drivers in promoting innovative developments in industry, science, medicine, space programs, and Arctic research.Sergei V. Kiriyenko, First Deputy Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office, Chairman of ROSATOM Supervisory Board
Welcome speech at Atomexpo 2017
The main challenge facing us is to restart the world energy agenda. This is a more ambitious role of nuclear energy in the near development of the world energy agenda with an emphasis on its economy, with an emphasis on its environmental superiority, with an emphasis on its technological leadership …For further serious progress in nuclear technologies, approaches, a new level of international cooperation in the nuclear industry is needed … And work at the level of experts, and work at the level of commercial companies, and intergovernmental cooperation should be focused, first of all, on the exchange of best practices.
Alexey Ye. Likhachev, Director General of ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation
Welcome speech at Atomexpo 2017
The Interregional Training Course: “Joint ROSATOM-IAEA Nuclear Energy Management School Focusing on Nuclear Infrastructure Development” is organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in collaboration with the State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom” (ROSATOM).
The purpose of the School is to help middle managers and specialists involved in nuclear infrastructure development in building managerial and technical competences essential for establishment of national nuclear energy programmes, particularly in newcomer countries that seek to develop nuclear power with large reactors as well as with small and medium size reactors.
PROGRAMME ADVANTAGES OF THE SCHOOL
- The main aspects related to nuclear infrastructure development will be covered by the IAEA, international and Russian experts who will share their insights and present best practices
- Practical sessions will be organized during which participants will be expected to contribute by analyzing case studies, working out problems as well as sharing information on their practices in the area of establishment/development of national nuclear programmes
- A special technical tour programme including the construction site of Leningrad NPP 2 with VVER-1200 reactors
The school is targeted to middle managers and specialists involved in development of national nuclear energy programmes, particularly from newcomer countries.
As the School will be conducted in English, participants should have proficiency to follow lectures and express themselves in this language.
