[en] Education and training are necessary to ensure that the next generation of nuclear industry professionals are prepared to manage complex nuclear power programmes. Helping national authorities, especially in developing countries, to obtain and manage this knowledge is key to the sustainability of nuclear power. With the closure of the 15th Joint IAEA-ICTP Nuclear Knowledge Management School on 9 August, the IAEA celebrates a milestone of training over 700 young professionals, since the inception of the Nuclear Knowledge Management School in 2004. Jointly organized by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the IAEA, the Nuclear Knowledge Management School, to date, has trained professionals from over 80 countries and provides participants with specialized education and training on the development and implementation of nuclear knowledge management programmes in nuclear science and technology organizations. Topics include, among others, human resource development, developing policies and strategies in managing nuclear knowledge, managing nuclear information resources, risk of knowledge loss and knowledge transfer.
