Conference in Croatia on small and medium-size electricity grids

From 3-6 June, the Croatian Nuclear Society (HND), in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the European Nuclear Society (ENS), the State Office for Radiological and Nuclear Safety (DZRNS) and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) of the University of Zagreb, successfully organised the 9th edition of the international conference entitled: Nuclear Option in Countries with Small and Medium Electricity Grids. The conference took place at Hotel Kolovare, in Zadar, a beautiful city on the Adriatic coast.

The conference programme was rich and diverse, covering topics that included Energy Planning and the Nuclear Option, Safety Culture and Public Relations for Radioactive Waste Management and Decommissioning. More than 50 papers were presented by experts from the nuclear industry, regulatory authorities, the academic sector, consultancies and institutions. More than 90 participants from 13 countries worldwide attended the conference. 

As a part of the conference programme, a Young Authors Competition (YAC) was held to motivate young authors to present their work at events like this. Two authors received prizes for the articles they had written: Raul Gonzalez, from the University of Pisa, Italy, and Kaliopa Mancheva, from Risk Engineering Ltd., Sofia, Bulgaria.

Since this conference is organised biannually by the Croatian Nuclear Society, we are already looking forward to welcoming you again to Zadar, in 2014.
