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

12 – 21 Nov 2019
Bangkok, Thailand
Event code: EVT1803626

The IAEA is now accepting applications for participation in first INPRO School on Methodology, Tools and Analysis for Enhanced Nuclear Energy Sustainability to be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 12 to 21 November 2019. The deadline for applications is 30 September 2019.

The IAEA has developed, under the aegis of INPRO, a methodology for assessing NES sustainability. The INPRO methodology covers all areas relevant to NES sustainability, all reactor types and fuel cycle facilities, all facilities of an NES, and all phases of an NES from cradle to grave.

INPRO also performs nuclear energy evolution scenario modelling and comparative evaluation of nuclear energy system (NES) options to understand key issues of transition to future NESs with enhanced sustainability. The scenario analysis and decision support frameworks together with the evaluation tools developed in INPRO have proven to be extremely useful for weighing the possible national choices for the scope and extent of national nuclear energy programmes and the needed collaboration with other countries to enhance the sustainability of NES.


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 as tools for performing modelling, analysis and sustainability assessment of nuclear energy systems. The course provides theoretical and practical introductory training on the associated tools, including:

  • Nuclear Energy Systems Assessment Economics Support Tool (NEST) for economic analysis and evaluation;
  • MESSAGE-NES tool for scenario modelling and analysis;
  • KIND Evaluation Tool for comparative evaluation and ranking of nuclear energy system/ scenario options; and
  • ROADMAPS Excel Tool for road mapping towards enhanced nuclear energy sustainability.

Other issues pertaining to the economics of nuclear power, energy planning, climate change, institutional and technology innovations will also be covered.

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 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 Southeast Asia countries, as well as from Australia and New Zealand.

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 Ato 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 30 September 2019.
