On May 17, the IAEA will host a webinar to share more about the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP), discuss possibilities and strategies for collaboration with universities and relevant associations as well as answer any questions you may have.
The challenge for the nuclear industry is to reach those influential policymakers and investors whose buy-in will be essential if nuclear is to succeed, writes Eric Meyer, the founder of Generation Atomic, which aims to “energise and empower today’s generations to advocate for a nuclear future”.
The annual Canadian Nuclear Association conference was held from 12-14 April. “Together for Net Zero,” landed on the heels of a federal commitment to radical decarbonisation and a budget that recognised the need for nuclear integration deeper within Canada’s energy strategy. It’s opening the door to a national nuclear opportunity, NEI contributor, Jacquie Hoornweg reports.
The CNA (Canadian Nuclear Association) held its annual conference in Ottawa again, after a two-year gap. The nuclear community was able to meet in person again, recognize the extraordinary progress being made, and discuss the nuclear path to a clean energy future – net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
UNENE, as a member of the nuclear community working together throughout the world, is aware of particular challenges for our colleagues in Ukraine, both students and academics, as well as nuclear industry workers. And we want to support efforts for safety of nuclear facilities, and all the personnel involved, including the important steps by the IAEA.

Applications opening soon for the IAEA’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme for women in nuclear
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme (MSCFP) aims to inspire and encourage young women to pursue a career in nuclear related fields, by providing highly motivated female students with scholarships for Master’s programmes and an opportunity to pursue an internship facilitated by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The next application call is scheduled to open in mid-July 2022 and will close by beginning of October 2022.
At UNENE’s three-day seminar in December 2021, participants learn about the latest developments in government direction, industry investment and activities as well as what researchers are working on in the labs to inform policy, business and career decisions.
Lowering cost and tightening schedule on big nuclear projects isn’t just good for shareholder returns; it could be the linchpin to ensuring the world can meet its net zero goals. Nuclear Promise X President/CEO, and UNENE M.Eng. graduate, Bharath Nangia tells us why nuclear efficiency is so important to fighting climate change, and explains the vital role of collaboration.
ada, UNENE members are celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD). This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias and the universities stepped up to share their experiences, challenges, accomplishments and plans for the future.
