WNU Summer Institute
Sixth Annual WNU Summer Institute, 3 July – 14 August 2010, University of Oxford, United Kingdom - application deadline is 27 November 2009
The WNU Summer Institute offers some 100 participants from around the world an opportunity to concentrate intensively on the peaceful application of nuclear technology. Participants, selected from promising nuclear professionals who demonstrate strong leadership potential, are educated in a broad spectrum of nuclear energy issues, engage in team-building and leadership exercises, and develop a network that will support them during their careers. The Summer Institute has been designed to enable participants to:
- gain cutting-edge knowledge and develop a broad international perspective on the full range of policy, environmental and social issues surrounding the peaceful applications of nuclear technology;
- hear from leading thinkers and educators on topics relevant to nuclear applications;
- experience practical teamwork with peers from many nations; and
- advance the global contribution of nuclear science and technology.
The IAEA provides financial support to a limited number of participants from developing countries. Applications should be made directly to WNU.
