World Nuclear University (WNU) is a new partnership that addresses nuclear education in an innovative, unique and international way: through a worldwide network of established institutions, the WNU seeks to promote both academic excellence and high professional ethics. WNU offers new forms of cooperation for nuclear education, in particular through allowing for joint and integrated efforts of all stakeholders: universities, industry and the international nuclear community. Among WNU activities, the Summer Institute – as an academy for future leaders in nuclear science and technology – is currently at the most advanced stage. The Summer Institute is open for a select group of graduate students and young professionals drawn from all over the world. The uniqueness of the WNU SI is in the fact that it is a global policy initiative rather than an educational event. The technical document gives an overview of the history of the development of the World Nuclear University and related IAEA activities and contains an analysis and recommendations from the first WNU Summer Institute, held in 2005 in the USA. This report is intended for a wide range of senior and middle level managers of nuclear industry, academia and research sector involved in nuclear education.
