Nuclear Knowledge Management Section

Nuclear Knowledge Management Section


Nuclear technology requires a high level of technical expertise and experience that must be developed and kept available for current and future generations. The Section assists Member States and the international community in retaining and transferring this knowledge. 

The Section develops methodologies and guidance documents for planning, designing and implementing nuclear knowledge management programmes. It also facilitates nuclear education, networking and experience exchange. One tool for this are the regular Nuclear Knowledge Management and Nuclear Energy Management Schools, organized by the IAEA in collaboration with various institutes around the world. In addition, regional networks help facilitate knowledge transfer and networking in higher education, training and related research in nuclear science and technology.

Promoting the use of state-of-the-art knowledge management technologies, the Section assists Member States by providing products and services for maintaining and preserving nuclear knowledge. The Cyber Learning Platform for Network Education and Training (CLP4NET) is an online platform that allows users to find educational resources easily and contains a learning environment to support instructor-led courses and disseminate e-learning self-study resources to a wider audience.

The Section also assists Member States in strengthening nuclear education through education assessment and planning, curriculum benchmarking and facilitating university collaboration. The International Nuclear Management Academy (INMA) is a framework facilitated by the IAEA in collaboration with nuclear engineering and business faculties at universities and with nuclear employers around the world. It supports participating universities in the implementation of high quality master's level management programmes for the nuclear sector.
