20 January 2012 - The Director General of the IAEA approved the overall restructuring of the Department of Nuclear Energy (NE). This included the creation of the Nuclear Information Section (NIS) and the establishment of a separate Nuclear Knowledge Management Section.
The newly created Nuclear Information Section consists of:
- INIS Unit
- IAEA Library Unit
- Systems Development and Support Group
This restructuring and creation of NIS provides an opportunity for further enhancement of existing information products and services, and the introduction of new ones - all geared towards the goal of higher organizational efficiency and effectiveness.
The Content Management Group, Database Production and Imaging Group, and Capacity Building and Liaison Group have all been combined to create one single monolith INIS Unit.
Ms Taghrid Atieh is the new Head of the INIS Unit, Ms Daw Ah Win is the Head of the IAEA Library Unit, while Mr Domenico Pistillo is the Acting Systems Development and Support Group Leader. Mr Dobrica Savic is the Head of the Nuclear Information Section.
