People come first

The theme of the upcoming installment of our traditional conference series is “You are the core”.

Behind every technological innovation are personal stories, full of individual curiosity and commitment. We hope that the event will allow us to explore the human-driven narratives behind all that there is to nuclear – and we encourage you to contribute from the standpoint of your biographies, experiences, dreams and expectations, both personal and professional.
