The IAEA Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Science and Technology: Addressing Current and Emerging Development Challenges, which will take place in Vienna, Austria, from 28 to 30 November 2018, seeks to facilitate high-level dialogue among participants on nuclear science, technology and applications for peaceful uses, and on their delivery to Member States, mainly through the Agency's technical cooperation programme, while highlighting their future contribution to sustainable development.

The Conference will also provide an opportunity to consider high-impact innovations that can be integrated into the national strategies of Member States for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. 

The Conference will consist of a ministerial segment, during which ministers will have the opportunity to share their national experiences, and a scientific and technical segment composed of high-level panel discussions involving ministers, policy makers, scientists, technical experts and entrepreneurs.


To demonstrate its commitment to sustainability, the IAEA will organize this conference as a 'green meeting' according to the guidelines of the Austrian Ecolabel.

There will be a focus on the areas of paper smart documentation, waste reduction and recycling, and environmentally friendly catering.
