IAEA 4th International Conference on Nuclear Knowledge Management and Human Resources Development

1-5 July 2024 in Vienna

The nuclear field faces human resources challenges across the board, including in Member States operating nuclear power plants and countries in phases 2 and 3 of the Milestones approach, as well as at other nuclear facilities, including research reactors, and radioactive waste management and fuel cycle facilities, subject to long term operation or decommissioning. Many of the opportunities for improving human resource development capabilities and ensuring the movement of knowledge and skills throughout the nuclear lifecycles are similar for all these facilities.

The programmatic activities of the IAEA encompass a dedicated subprogramme on nuclear knowledge management which focuses on:

  • Developing methodologies and guidance documents for planning, designing and implementing nuclear knowledge management programmes;
  • Facilitating nuclear education, networking and experience exchange;
    assisting Member States by providing products and services for maintaining and preserving nuclear knowledge; and
  • Promoting the use of state-of-the-art knowledge management technologies and supporting interested Member States in their use.


The I2EN is in charge of coordinating the French participation to this conference. France will be hosting a side-event during this meeting. Keep checking this website for further information as it becomes available.
