Around 80 side events will be held during the General Conference, some in person and others virtual, with a number of virtual events also open to the general public – all highlighting the innovative work of the IAEA and Member States in nuclear technologies.

At one event the security inspectors of the IAEA Discuss their work and experience in conducting verification activities on the ground and at IAEA headquarters to reassure the IAEA that States will not divert nuclear material from peaceful activities or misuse nuclear technology. In another event, IAEA security experts will explain how to analyze environmental samples for traces of nuclear material, z and safety.

With Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), which are widely considered to be on offer Has significant potential for future nuclear power generation, another event will address the relevant safety considerations required for SMRs and how they can be incorporated into their design processes. Another event will highlight the IAEA’s latest safety-related activities on novel advanced reactors, including SMRs, covering a range of topics from licensing to location, design, commissioning and operation.

The finalists of the IAEA’s Net Zero Challenge will present their projects describing how low-carbon energy sources could help their countries and regions achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and limit global warming to below 1.5 degrees Celsius this century. the The broader use of stable isotope techniques will be highlighted in an event that describes in detail how they can contribute to generation Data to track the origin of greenhouse gas emissions. There will also be an interactive session in which The participants are challenged to determine the electricity generation mix of a country and at the same time to optimize it in terms of emission reduction, costs and security of supply.

An event will examine how cooperation in nuclear technology has contributed to development in Asia and the Pacific. It highlights successful projects in nuclear medicine, non-destructive testing and agricultural productivity, as well as the challenges of implementing projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. An event entitled “The Power of Data: an IAEA proach to Enhance Cancer Support – from Prevention to Palliation” will explain how collaboration in data collection and ensuring high-quality and transparent handling and processing of data are key to creation more robust, more accurate data sets are.

We’re celebrating 15 years Implementation of Integrated Nuclear Safety Support Plans (INSSPs), an event A panel discussion will take place with representatives of the IAEA and national representatives as well as representatives of international partners who support the INSSP program to share their experiences and reflect on previous experiences. Another event will show how nuclear techniques play a prominent role in the characterization and preservation of objects of cultural heritage.

Other side events include sessions highlighting the practical value of digitization in advancing decommissioning projects, including 3D simulations, visualization, virtual and augmented reality; Presentation of new features and resources of DSRSNet, a forum for the exchange of practical experience, knowledge and international developments in the secure management of Decommissioned sealed radioactive sources; Discuss the areas Nuclear fission technology that can benefit the development of fusion technology as the ITER Start date of experiment to create plasma proaches; and exchange of information on various contractual arrangements, the IAEA’s recruitment process and existing talent scouting tools aimed at finding qualified professionals from all Member States.

There will also be a virtual tour of the IAEA Laboratory for Technical Services for Radiation Safety, which annually monitors 3000 occupationally exposed workers for external and internal radiation exposure. The full list of virtual and physical side events can be found here.
