“All sectors of nuclear energy will need to have qualified and competent people to take nuclear energy forward throughout the 21st century, and the conference will focus on looking at our future human resource challenges and help our member states to better understand prepare for these challenges.”
David Drury, Technical Head – Management and Human Resources within the Nuclear Power Engineering Section of the Department of Energy, IAEA.
International Student Competition
One of the challenges of the human resources lifecycle in the nuclear field is attracting and recruiting talented individuals. To foster the younger generation’s interest in nuclear science and technology, the IAEA is holding an international student competition held in conjunction with the Third International Conference on Human Resource Development for Nuclear Power Programmes.
Students (aged 14-18 and currently enrolled in secondary schools) are invited to promote discussion and raise awareness on the current or future impacts and applications of nuclear science and technology in our lives. Students who design and implement the most innovative projects will be eligible for a trip to the Republic of Korea, to present at the conference, visit local schools and institutions, and attend cultural events.
Thomas Thor is a proud participant of IAEA Third International Conference on Human Resources Development for Nuclear Power Programmes.
