More Newcomers Eye Nuclear Power as UAE, Belarus to Start Operating First NPPs   Newcomers Helping Newcomers: UAE's Khalifa University Hosts IAEA Training Course
With Belarus and the United Arab Emirates preparing to operate their first nuclear power plants and two other countries building their first reactors, 2020 is set to be a significant year for so-called newcomer countries looking to add this reliable source of low carbon electricity to their energy mix.   What does it take to develop the infrastructure for a new nuclear power programme? Junior and mid-career professionals from 19 countries seeking answers to that question attended a training course organized by the IAEA in collaboration with Khalifa University of Science and Technology in the UAE.
Deadline Extended: Student Competition for Innovative IT Projects Supporting Education in Nuclear Technology   Call for Papers: Management of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) in Industry
The deadline to submit project abstracts for the international student competition organized in conjunction with the International Conference on Nuclear Knowledge Management and HR Development has been extended to 15 Feb 2020.   Interested contributors have until 28 February 2020 to submit abstracts for the International Conference on Management of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) in Industry, to be held in Vienna, 19-23 October 2020.
New CRP: Developing a Phenomena Identification and Ranking Table (PIRT)   Fostering Cradle-to-Grave Management of Radioactive Sources
The IAEA is launching a four-year Coordinated Research Project on In-Vessel Melt Retention, a severe accident mitigation strategy for nuclear power plants. IVMR consists of cooling the melted reactor core material from outside the reactor vessel in order to avoid reactor vessel failure and retain corium inside.   To protect people and the environment from the potential adverse effects of ionizing radiation while fostering the safe use of radioactive sources, the IAEA has been working with 32 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and in Latin America to support the ‘cradle-to-grave’ management of sealed radioactive sources.

Nuclear Power: The Road to a Carbon Free Future
Today, nuclear power provides 10% of the world’s electricity. But to stem climate change, we’re going to need far greater amounts of clean and reliable energy. 30 countries currently operate nuclear power plants. More than two dozen others are looking at nuclear energy to meet their power and climate needs. In the western United States, more than 30 towns and cities are also looking to the future. They want to go carbon free. And they’re betting on small modular reactors to get there.
