Non-serial Publications

English CN-114/UP

¦ Date published: 2004


The international conference on “Fifty Years of Nuclear Power – the Next Fifty Years” held from 27 June to 2 July 2004 in Moscow and Obninsk, Russian Federation, was organized to coincide with two important early milestones in the history of nuclear power. The first was the 50th anniversary of the first electricity produced by nuclear power for a national grid, which took place in Obninsk in June 1954, and the second was the 50th anniversary of the UN General Assembly resolution that called for international cooperation in developing the peaceful uses of atomic energy and setting up of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The objectives of the conference were to highlight the achievements over half a century of the peaceful implementation of nuclear energy; provide historical perspectives on the technical issues and benefits that have arisen from the use of nuclear energy; and consider the future applications of nuclear power over the next fifty years. The publication includes a summary of the conference, summaries of each of the sessions by the chairpersons and all the available papers.
