Open for Applications - Deadline 15 June 2007

5 March 2007 ? The 2007 School of Nuclear Knowledge Management will be held from 24 to 28 September 2007 in Trieste, Italy. This school for nuclear experts from Member States is jointly organized by the IAEA, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Trieste) and the World Nuclear Association (WNA, London) as a World Nuclear University Event.

Scientists and managers in academia, industry and the government sector, who are in charge of managing nuclear knowledge in any form - as data, human resources or institutional knowledge - are invited to apply for participation in this unique training event.

The School will provide participants with an overview and basic understanding of the tools, mechanisms and challenges in nuclear knowledge management (NKM). Managing such knowledge requires special skills derived from several disciplines and fields, including data management, information technology, archives and libraries, human resource planning, academic institutional planning and training. There will be opportunities to exchange experiences and information on implementing NKM, and present lessons learned from knowledge management projects, examples of best practices and national experiences in academia, industry and the government sector. As a result of the course, participants should be able to apply what they have learned in nuclear knowledge management in a workplace in the nuclear sector.
