Register for the event of the year for young nuclear professionals

Registration is now open for European Nuclear Young Generation Forum 2013, likely the most comprehensive conference of its kind to be arranged in Sweden this decade. Register now and to attend the conference for a reduced and very affordable fee.

In June 2013, Stockholm and Sweden will once more host an international conference for young nuclear professionals. With Vattenfall and Westinghouse as main partners, approximately 400 participants from Europe and beyond will get the opportunity to be informed about the latest news in the industry and establish new valuable contacts for the future!

The last time such an event occured was in 2006, when over 400 young nuclear professionals from 52 different countries came to Stockholm to participate in the International Youth Nuclear Congress, IYNC. The conference was a success and Sweden has now been chosen to host the European Nuclear Young Generation Forum, ENYGF, from June 17th to June 20th.

The conference will consist of lectures from keynote speakers, workshops, presentation of technical papers and unconference. We are proud to present the internationally renowned keynote speaker, Sigval Berg from the United States of America. Mr Berg is recognized for his inspiring lecturers on leadership and how leadership affects people as well as safety culture in organizations. Mr Berg is well acquainted with these subjects from his career having held leading positions in an American Nuclear Power Plant and a nuclear submarine, as well as in the industry associations Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) and The World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO). The venue for the conference will be the Royal Institute of Technology premises in Stockholm but technical visits to various Swedish destinations within the nuclear field will also be arranged.

The conference will be organized around the following three themes:

  • Operation of nuclear power plants. This theme focuses on issues that are relevant to a nuclear power plant during operation, such as safety culture, plant status, experience feedback, power up-rates and maintenance.

  • Decommissioning and waste. This theme focuses on how nuclear waste is managed, as well as how a nuclear facility can be phased out. Today, Sweden is one of the most advanced countries in the work when it comes to storing spent nuclear fuel in deep repositories, which has attracted great interest among EU member states and others.

  • Nuclear power in the future. Here, those who are interested in areas such as new-build, new reactor concepts and the political future of nuclear can learn more.

Young Generation (YG) was founded in Sweden in 1994 at the initiative of Jan Runermark, the former president of ABB Atom. The purpose of YG is to develop personal networks, contribute to knowledge transfer between generations and to increase knowledge about nuclear power in a broad perspective.

European Nuclear Society Young Generation Network (ENSYGN) is an collaboration between national Young Generation Networks who organizes biennial conferences on various places in Europe under the name European Nuclear Young Generation Forum, ENYGF. In the summer of 2013 it is Sweden’s turn to organize ENYGF in Stockholm!
