The aim of the conference is to provide an update on nuclear safety in Europe in a global context. The event will address potential challenges for nuclear safety regulation, key recent developments in EU policy (directives on nuclear safety, on spent fuel and waste management and on basic safety standards) and emerging topics in the field of nuclear safety, such as long-term operation of nuclear installations and irregularities and supply chain control. It is not intended to be a highly technical event but rather a forum to discuss topical issues arising in the nuclear sector with a wide range of stakeholders.
The conference is attended by speakers/panellists and participants who represent a wide range of stakeholders and come from practically all EU Member States (including non-nuclear), from several non-EU countries and from relevant international organisations, such as the IAEA or OECD's NEA. There have been around 300 participants attending every past conference.
