Call for Applications: 16th IAEA-FORATOM Joint Event on Management Systems in September


 

Deadline: 30 April 2020

Describtion

This Forum is the 16th IAEA-FORATOM joint event aimed at raising awareness and increasing understanding of the role of management systems in integrating all the vital objectives of nuclear facilities and activities. This year’s event has a special focus on nuclear supply chain management.

The nuclear industry is undergoing a period of significant change, with long-term operation (LTO) programmes underway and new build projects in progress or planned in many countries. Some countries are embarking on a nuclear power programme for the first time, while others are expanding their fleet. In some parts of the world, nuclear power programmes are downsizing or being phased out, resulting in significant implications on the supply chain strategy and management.

In addition, many specialists in areas such as safety, design and operations and maintenance are retiring, while the new generation is arriving gradually to replace them.  

Changes among subcontractors and the entire supply chain can also pose challenges in LTO scenarios.

Application

The Programme Committee is seeking abstracts which present examples of management system applications, quality management, and/or management of the supply chain. Abstracts, up to a maximum of 500 words, should summarize the objectives of the work, main challenges, main steps, and the findings and lessons learned. Presentations and posters are being sought on a wide variety of topics with an emphasis on practical examples of good practices in the area of management system development, implementation and continuous improvement.
