IAEA, Vienna, Austria
Technical Meeting on Topical Issues in the Development of Nuclear Power Infrastructure
The annual Technical Meeting on Topical Issues of Infrastructure Development is the main forum for senior managers involved in national nuclear power programmes to meet and discuss challenges and common issues. Since first organized in 2006, the meeting has provided a useful opportunity to share good practices and lessons learned in establishing the required infrastructure for a safe and successful nuclear power programme.
The 2014 Meeting will continue this tradition. Targeted primarily at senior managers from national governments, future owner-operators, regulatory bodies or other institutions involved in the nuclear power programme, the meeting will focus on Member States challenges in prioritizing and sequencing activities that must be addressed in nuclear infrastructure development, as outlined in the IAEA Milestones publication (IAEA Nuclear Energy Series No. NG-G-3.1).
The meeting focuses on strategic management of new or expanding nuclear power development programmes, in particular:
- National decision on nuclear power and pre-feasibility contents;
- Integrated approach to human resources and workforce planning;
- Legislative and regulatory frameworks;
- Communication and stakeholder involvement;
- Preparing the national industry to be part of the nuclear power project;
- Contractual options, financing and managing financial risk.
