  Over 250 nuclear industry leaders, regulators, researchers, government representatives and technology providers have issued a 'Call to Action' for accelerating innovative solutions to sustain and advance the current operational fleet of nuclear power plants around the world.
Public Opinion Research Can Guide Stakeholder Communication for Nuclear Power   Experts Meet to Discuss Tools for Assessing Macroeconomic Impacts of Nuclear Energy
Understanding stakeholders’ opinions, awareness and knowledge on nuclear power is a crucial component for decision making and indeed for the success of a nuclear power programme, participants at an IAEA technical meeting.   Energy planners, policymakers and regulatory officials met in Vienna for a meeting that reviewed the latest version of an IAEA-developed modelling tool, known as the Extended Input Output Model for Nuclear Power Plant Impact Assessment.
Nuclear Newcomers: Getting Organized for Success   IAEA Designates Swiss Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne as Collaborating Centre
Coordination among stakeholders is key for any complex undertaking. Introducing nuclear power is no different. The IAEA has recently issued a publication that can help nuclear newcomer countries set up and maintain an effective coordination mechanism, referred to as a nuclear energy programme implementing organization.
  With a cooperation agreement signed this month, the IAEA has designated the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, as an IAEA Collaborating Centre to support IAEA Member States in increasing their modelling and simulation capabilities in the field of advanced reactors.
IAEA Workshop Highlights Novel Trends in Decommissioning   Strengthening Plant Life Management
Decommissioning of nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities based on sustainability and circular economy principles can bring great benefits, including less waste, lower costs and reduced risk of delays. It is also a great way to engage stakeholders, agreed experts at a recent international workshop.   Organized under the framework of a regional technical cooperation project, the event brought together 27 senior managers, regulators and operators of nuclear power programmes from Europe, Africa, and Asia and the Pacific to focus on good practices in China’s nuclear power programme.
