Stored at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station
  New Crowdsourcing Challenge: Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation 2020
An IAEA team of experts has welcomed progress made by Japan in preparing for a decision on how to dispose of large amounts of treated water stored at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station following the 2011 accident.   The IAEA is inviting young professionals to propose an original concept or project outline for advancing the decommissioning of nuclear facilities or environmental remediation of radiologically contaminated sites.
Concluded CRP: Sustainable Education in Nuclear Science and Technology (L53003)   IAEA Launches Project to Help Countries Assess Viability of SMRs for Climate Change
A four-year IAEA Coordinated Research Project (CRP), recently concluded, supported national authorities in the adoption of innovative information and computer technology (ICT) practices and has enabled further collaboration in nuclear science and technology education in participating countries.   The IAEA recently commenced a two-year regional project to assist countries in energy planning as well as determining the role of SMRs in helping them meet their climate targets. The project, part of the IAEA’s technical cooperation programme in Europe and Central Asia, involves 25 countries.

What Happens to a Nuclear Power Plant
During a Pandemic Lockdown?
Currently, all 442 nuclear power reactors worldwide are in operation. They continue to provide 10 percent of the world’s electricity and around one-third of its low-carbon electricity. Nuclear power plants can continue operation because of their contingency plans, which include what to do during a global pandemic, such as COVID-19. If there is a concern that not enough staff are fit for duty, nuclear reactors could be pre-emptively shut down and maintained in a stable condition.
