Virtual EVENT - IAEA INPRO School on Methodology, Tools and Analysis for Enhanced Nuclear Energy Sustainability

22 – 26 Nov 2021
Virtual event
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT1803626

The International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO) was established in 2000 with the goal of ensuring a sustainable nuclear energy supply to help meet 21st century global energy needs. INPRO’s activities are centred on the key concepts of global nuclear energy sustainability and the development of long-range nuclear energy strategies, so that nuclear energy is and remains available to meet national energy needs.

The INPRO School aims to support capacity building and national human resource development in the nuclear energy sector. In the course of the INPRO School, IAEA and international experts will share their insights and experience to familiarize the participants with the INPRO concepts, methodology and tools for performing modelling, analysis and sustainability assessment of nuclear energy systems.

The School programme focuses on the following topics related to the sustainability of nuclear energy systems:

  • Nuclear Energy Sustainability
  • Role of Technological and Institutional Innovations
  • Nuclear Energy System Scenario Modelling
  • Economics of Nuclear Power
  • Infrastructure and Safety
  • Proliferation Resistance
  • Environment and Waste Management

Young professionals working in the nuclear energy industry and in R&D and students and lecturers from technical and nuclear universities will benefit by a better understanding of the nuclear role in long term sustainability of energy production according to national priorities. The national experts can enhance their skills in data analysis, modelling of NESs, developing NES options/scenarios, analysis of results and multifaceted evaluation of alternatives. Equipped with analysis tools and competence in systematic analysis, the experts will be able to contribute more effectively to the national decisions on planning and development of nuclear energy in the country.

The INPRO School will also provide a unique networking opportunity for future experts, managers and advisers to the decision makers in nuclear energy planning.


The School is targeted at experts working in nuclear energy departments and at electric utilities, energy ministries and/or research and development institutions, including young lecturers and postgraduates from the technical universities. Designated participants are expected to have a sound knowledge and understanding of energy and nuclear power systems.

The event is open to participants from the Asian Member States that are either embarking on a new nuclear power programme or expanding an existing one, as well as for the INPRO Members from Asia.

All persons wishing to participate in the IAEA INPRO School have to be designated by an IAEA Member State. In order to be designated by an IAEA Member State, participants are requested to send the Participation Form (Form A) to their competent national authority (e.g. Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Permanent Mission to the IAEA or National Atomic Energy Authority) for onward transmission to the IAEA by 1 November 2021.
