Division of Nuclear Power

The Division supports countries with operating nuclear power plants in enhancing the performance and safe long-term plant operation and the effectiveness of engineering processes for new builds, and helps increase capacity in Member States to use advanced management and human resource development methods for nuclear power programmes. It also assists Member States embarking on nuclear power programmes in planning and building their national nuclear infrastructures. Additionally, it fosters international cooperation on global nuclear energy sustainability and innovations, supports countries in their strategic long-range nuclear energy planning, and provides collaborative frameworks for technology development in advanced reactors and the safe use of nuclear power for non-electric applications.
