[en] The commercial nuclear program in Spain dates back to the beginning of the 1960s. There are currently nine units in operation, one more has been decommissioned and a further five are in different phases of construction but under nuclear moratorium since 1983. This article gives a general overview of the program, the criteria applied, what it has meant to and required of the industry and, finally, what lessons have been learned. (author) 2 figs
[en] The dual role of NUCNET is discussed: - exchange of news and other information within the world's nuclear community for use by top managers and executives and public communicators, and - distribution of news of interest to the public to wire agency journalists and other sections of the media
[en] Proposal: • Increasing nuclear activities around the world; • Enquiry to get and be able to deliver up-to-date information on ongoing research; • Frequent request to present Generation IV systems; • The GIF could spread educational information on Generation IV systems and underlying research; • Provide a medium for lessons: – A visual aid (set of slides); – A textbook.
[en] The Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) has accumulated a number of technology development and research outcomes, including its representative achievements, such as atomic energy technology independence and the first exporting of an atomic energy system, since it was established in 1959. With its long history of over 50 years, KAERI (Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute) has produced a large amount of information and explicit knowledge such as experiment data, database, design data, report, instructions, and operation data at each stage of its research and development process as it has performed various researches since its establishment. Also, a lot of tacit knowledge has been produced both knowingly and unknowingly based on the experience of researchers who have participated in many projects. However, in the research environment in Korea where they focus overly on the output, tacit knowledge has not been managed properly compared to explicit knowledge. This tacit knowledge is an asset as important as explicit knowledge for an effective research and development. Moreover, as the first generation of atomic energy and research manpower retire, their accumulated experience and knowledge are in danger of disappearing. Therefore, in this study, we sought how to take a whole view and to document atomic energy technology researched and developed by KAERI, from the background to achievement of each field of the technology.

[en] Training in various branches of nuclear science and technology is one of the most important ways in which IAEA has been endeavouring to promote the peaceful uses of atomic energy throughout the world, and by the end of last year more than 500 trainees had completed their studies under the Agency's fellowship programme. In an attempt to assess the value of this programme, the Agency requests the fellows themselves, after they have completed their training and returned to their home countries, to send brief reports on their training and the use being made of it in their work. Summaries of a few of these reports were carried in the last issue of this Bulletin; a few more are summarized
