Nuclear Energy Side Events at the 65th IAEA General Conference


The IAEA Department of Nuclear Energy (NE) will host five hybrid side events, as well as 13 espace events, during the 65th IAEA General Conference, to be held in Vienna from 20 – 24 September 2021.

IAEA Net Zero Challenge: Meet the Finalists

Monday, 20 September 2021, 15:00 - 16:30 CET. Conference Room C3, C Building, 7th floor. Register here to attend online.

During this event the six IAEA Net Zero Challenge finalists will present their policy recommendations and the Challenge committee will then select a winner. The Challenge was launched on 22 June 2021, inviting people aged 18 to 35 to propose policy recommendations which focus on creating an enabling environment for increased use of nuclear power and other low-carbon energy technologies, in order to accelerate the transition to net zero energy systems. They were asked to answer the question: “How can nuclear energy alongside other low carbon sources help your country or region to achieve their net zero targets?” through clear and concise policy recommendations.
