[German title: Aufruf für Artikel-Beiträge: International Conference on Knowledge Management in Nuclear Facilities]
International Conference on Knowledge Management in Nuclear Facilities, 18-21 June 2007, Vienna, Austria
In recent years, new issues have emerged in Member States, including ageing facilities and personnel, nuclear phase-out policies, the expectation of nuclear growth in some regions and the objective to further improve the economic competitiveness of nuclear energy, while maintaining a high level of safety.
Awareness of the importance of nuclear knowledge management in addressing the challenges the industry is facing has grown significantly, both in the industry and in regulatory authorities, and a large number of projects is underway. Knowledge management is becoming an important element of the organizational behaviour of the nuclear industry.
In 2002, the IAEA General Conference adopted a new resolution on Nuclear Knowledge, emphasizing the importance of nuclear knowledge management. The resolution was reiterated in subsequent years. The conference is organized in response to those resolutions, also following the first conference on Nuclear Knowledge Management – Strategies, Information Management and Human Resource Development, organized by the Agency in 2004 in France.
