14:00, Vienna (Austria) time



As countries embark on nuclear power plant (NPP) construction projects and existing plants start facing long term operational challenges, it has become evident that knowledge transfer as well as lessons learned are among the key areas of importance. This webinar will provide a broad overview of new projects and units undergoing modification to ensure successful continued operation. Invited representatives from large scale nuclear power plant projects that have met budget and schedule deadlines will be sharing their experiences and lessons learned with interested stakeholders on successful project management strategies that have helped these nuclear power plant projects to be undertaken safely, in a cost effective manner.


The objective of this webinar is to share lessons learned from the management of successful large scale nuclear power plant projects. Participants will be provided with information on the successful strategies implemented as well as challenges to avoid when embarking on large projects in their countries such as nuclear power plant construction.
