Nuclear Knowledge Management School 2012
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, Vienna, Austria), in cooperation with the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, Trieste, Italy) is organizing a School of Nuclear Knowledge Management, to be held in Trieste from 3 to 7 September 2012.
The purpose of the School is to provide specialized education and training on development and implementation of knowledge management strategies in nuclear science and technology. The main focus will be to discuss and share lessons learned, practical solutions and good practices, with the aim to form “forward thinking” and make results and insights directly applicable in the workplace in the nuclear sector.
The School will concentrate on methodological aspects of Nuclear Knowledge Management (NKM). Real cases will be presented, as well as lessons learned, accumulated national experiences and good practices from NKM programmes in different nuclear organizations.
The invitation to the School is directed to young professionals from the nuclear field that are or may be in the near future in charge of managing nuclear knowledge. Background information on IAEA activities in Nuclear Knowledge Management is available from: http://www.iaea.org/NuclearKnowledge
The course will be based on a series of presentations, followed by case studies and practical sessions, analysing the issues raised and the difficulties envisaged. Pre-training activities will be required of participants prior to their attendance. Experts from organizations with recognized NKM programmes will provide leading presentations and support participants in their work in breakout sessions. Time will be provided to participants to discuss real cases and implementation problems with available experts.
