    The Impact of Knowledge Management Practices on NPP Organizational Performance - Results of a Global Survey

    Nuclear power plant (NPP) organizations have been dealing with knowledge management (KM) related issues and knowledge processes from the outset. However, while some NPPs have adopted KM practices and have been proactive in implementing strategic company-wide KM programmes, many other NPPs do not view or manage these activities from a strategic KM perspective, nor yet see any need to do so. While the concepts of KM are beginning to be understood in the nuclear industry, they have yet to be widely applied and the benefits are difficult to measure. There has been little prior research on KM in NPP organizations.

    This report summarizes the results of empirical research that directly investigated the relationship between KM practices in NPPs, their impact on the quality of organizational knowledge processes, and the resulting effects on NPP organizational effectiveness. It presents the basic findings of the IAEA Global KM Survey of NPPs conducted in 2010.

    Nuclear Engineering Education: A Competence-based Approach in Curricula Development

    Maintaining nuclear competencies in the nuclear industry and nuclear regulatory authorities will be one of the most critical challenges in the near future. With the recent upsurge in interest in, and support for, nuclear power, many Member States (MS) are considering the introduction of Nuclear Power as part of their national energy strategy; other countries are entering the decommissioning phase or/and considering expansion of existing fleets of nuclear power plants (NPP). Both approaches require careful planning, preparation and investment in time and human resources. Of principal importance is the availability of a well-prepared competent workforce to operate and regulate nuclear facilities. The management of nuclear knowledge in these countries and the development of the human resources are fundamental pre-requisites to the safe and secure operation of nuclear reactors. To meet this challenge, many countries are establishing nuclear engineering educational programmes to graduate competent engineers to work in nuclear power. Read more →
