Nuclear Competence Building

Nuclear Energy Agency

At a time when government R&D funding for nuclear energy has been dramatically reduced and profit margins of electricity generators have been squeezed, this report presents the result of an international survey on recent initiatives in the area of nuclear education and training.  It dicusses key human resource issues and good practice for international collaboration, which are seen as ameliorating the decline of technical innovation and competence in the nuclear sector.  The report includes an executive summary along with conclusions and recommendations aimed at policy makers and other stakeholders.  It also contains in-depth analysis of the factual information collected.
