I2EN’s Assembly convenes once a year in September to discuss the development & activities of the Institute.
The Assembly is chaired by the High-commissioner for Atomic Energy. It gathers all Partner companies and Associate Members of the Institute.
Any organization—higher education institution, industrial corporation, R&D organization, training center—with activities in the field of education, training, and recruitment in nuclear science and technology can apply for an Associate Membership as long as its application has been accepted by the Partners Council and it has signed the Associate Members Charter.
