Virtual EVENT - Joint Russia-IAEA INPRO School for managers and decision-makers in the nuclear sector and government.

8 – 12 Nov 2021
Virtual event
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT2002541

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 first Joint Russia-IAEA INPRO School for managers and decision-makers in the nuclear sector and government aims to support capacity building and national human resource development in the nuclear energy sector. In the course of the INPRO School, the IAEA and international experts will share their insights and experience to familiarize the participants with the INPRO concepts, methodology, tools and services that INPRO offers to the Member States.

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

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

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 School is targeted at managers and decision-makers from the middle management level in the nuclear sector and government, as well as at the national technical experts working in the areas of planning of a national nuclear power programme, innovative technology development for nuclear power and nuclear energy system analysis and assessment, and officers of ministries responsible for nuclear energy development programmes and international cooperation. 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 Member States that are either embarking on a new nuclear power programme, or expanding an existing one, as well as for the INPRO Members.

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 20 October 2021.
