Competence building may become the bottleneck of nuclear development. The nuclear power sector is faced with significant and potentially growing demands for qualified personnel, for plant refurbishments and new nuclear power plants, as well as for decommissioning projects to retire the ageing fleet of existing plants.

Building and maintaining nuclear expertise and competence, obtained through education and training, is nowadays a critical aspect of nuclear knowledge management. Education is crucial in ensuring the capabilities necessary for the safe and successful application of nuclear technology are sustained.
