As the science and knowledge service of the European Commission, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle.
The purpose of the symposium is to foster constructive dialogue and information exchange between the IAEA Secretariat, IAEA Member States, nuclear industry representatives and technical experts (in particular, those involved in nuclear non-proliferation matters), with a view to exploring jointly the strategic issues faced by the IAEA and to discussing the implementation of possible solutions by the safeguards community as a whole.
A preliminary programme will be made available on the symposium web page  (see Section M) well in advance of the symposium. The final programme and the Book of Abstracts will be available upon registration at the symposium.
The symposium will consist of approximately eight sessions over five days and will be held in the M Building of the Vienna International Centre. It will begin with an opening plenary session on the first day, continue with parallel topical sessions on days two to four, and conclude with a plenary session on the fifth day.
These sessions will address forward looking safeguards topics (see below) through oral presentations, poster presentations, and discussions.
