On October 18-20, 2021, the Moscow branch of Rosatom Technical Academy hosted the face-to-face part of the joint Russia-IAEA Advanced Nuclear Energy Management School for senior-level managers and decision-makers working in the nuclear sector in building and enhancing their managerial and leadership competencies essential for establishing, expanding and managing national nuclear energy programmes. The School was divided into two parts – virtual and face-to-face training. The virtual part of the School was held on August 3-5, 2021.
The face-to-face part of the School was attended by 25 participants from
11 countries. The trainees had an opportunity to deepen their knowledge in nuclear security, industrial involvement, IAEA safeguards and the nuclear fuel cycle. The School programme included a technical tour to the site of JSC “Machine-Building Plant” in Elektrostal– one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants. The participants took an active part in panel discussions and open dialogues with Russian and international experts.
The IAEA Nuclear Energy Management School has been held by the Agency on the regular basis since 2010.
The first Russia-IAEA Nuclear Energy Management School was held in 2016 in the St. Petersburg Branch of Rosatom Tech. Since 2017, Russian Schools have been held within the framework of an agreement between ROSATOM and the IAEA on extra-budgetary contribution of Russian Federation to Technical Cooperation projects for the development of national nuclear infrastructure in newcomer countries.
