BULGARIAN NUCLEAR SOCIETY CONFERENCE
The Bulgarian Nuclear Society, in cooperation with European Nuclear Society (ENS), Bulgarian Atomic Forum (BULATOM) and Kozloduy NPP, will hold its annual conference Nuclear power for people at Sunny Beach, from 18-21 September 2013.
Sunny Beach is the largest and the most popular holiday resort in Bulgaria. During the summer the resort is visited by many thousands of tourists. The main strip of high-rise hotels is several kilometres long and extends along a wide bay between Sveti Vlas and Nessebar.
The resort's construction began back in Communist times, in 1958. Construction works began at a site where two old wells supplying Nessebar with water in ancient times and during the Middle Ages were located.
The climate of the area is Mediterranean, explaining Sunny Beach's popularity with tourists since the time of the Soviet Union. Since then the resort's popularity has grown among German holidaymakers, who add to the already large numbers of Bulgarian and Russian visitors.
More recently, Sunny Beach
has begun to attract the attention
of British, Irish, Sandinavian
and Dutch tourists, for whom it is a more affordable alternative to the established Mediterranean resorts.
The conference is a much-anticipated event for specialists in all fields of application of nuclear energy for benefit of the people, because it allows exchange of ideas and experiences between specialists covering a vast range of topics, including alternative energy sources, radiation protection, environmental protection and others.
There will be a session devoted to the CORONA FP7 Euratom project Establishment of a Regional Center of Competence for VVER Technology and Nuclear Applications. The partners in the project are: Kozloduy Nuclear Power Plant Plc of Bulgaria; the Atomic Energy Research Institute of Hungary; Fortum of Finland; the Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy of the Bulgarian Academy of Science; the EC’s JRC (Joint Research Cntre) – Institute of Energy; the National Research Nuclear University of Moscow, Energetic Physics Institute; the Rez Nuclear Research Centre, Czech Republic; PM Dimensions GmbH of Austria; Risk Engineering Ltd of Bulgaria; Tecnatom of Spain and Intellectual Technologies Slavutich, of Ukraine. The partnerswill present and discuss the results of the CORONA pilot training scheme for non-nuclear specialists.
Women in Nuclear (WiN) will share their experiences of working with the young generation and talk about collaboration within WiN and their cooperation with other nuclear organizations.
WiN-Bulgaria is part of WiN-Europe and WiN-Global. The organisation celebrates this year its twentieth anniversary.
