Business Programme for the VII International Forum ATOMEXPO 2015 is approved

S. V. Kirienko, CEO of the State Atomic Energy Corporation, Rosatom, recently approved the Business Programme for the VII International Forum ATOMEXPO 2015, which will be held in Moscow, in Gostiny Dvor, from 1-3 June.

The main event of the Forum will be the Plenary Meeting, which will be dedicated to the following topic: Nuclear power engineering is the catalyst for social and economic development. Guests from many countries and congress participants will discuss the advantages of nuclear power engineering, its influence on social and economic development and the issues that would probably arise in the event of refusing to make use of nuclear energy.

The Plenary Meeting moderator will be Agneta Rising, the Director General of the World Nuclear Association (WNA). It is expected that the following people will take part in the meeting: Sergey Kirienko, CEO of the State Corporation, Rosatom; Filipp Knoche, Executive Director of Areva; Tim Yeo, Chairman of the Energy and Climate Change Committee at the lower Chamber of the UK Parliament; Khaled Tukan, Chairman of the Jordan Atomic Energy Commission; Vu Huy Hoang, the Vietnamese Minister of industry and trade; Tina Joemat Pettersson, the RSA Minister of Energy; Taner Yildiz, the Minister of energy and natural resources of Turkey; Takuya Hattori, the President of Japan Atomic Industrial Forum; William Magwood, Director General of Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and development (NEA of OECD).

In the Forum’s Business Programme special attention is paid to international cooperation in the field on nuclear energy between the Russian Federation and countries from Latin America, the Asia-Pacific Region, Africa, and Central and Eastern Europe, as well as to discussions about Russian proposals for the development of its national energy programmes. In addition, a special session entitled: Atomic energy in BRICS countries will be devoted to addressing these issues.

During the Forum the following thematic round-tables are planned:

  • The role of NFC (nuclear fuel cycle) at the current state of nuclear power industry development

  • Economic effectiveness, security safeguards at implementation of referential decisions at the final stage of the life cycle of nuclear materials

  • Global nuclear engineering: Opportunities for global and local partnerships

  • The power engineering industry: cooperation at the worldwide market;

  • Integrated solutions for personnel training and nuclear infrastructure development within national nuclear programmes

  • NPP operation and maintenance: an up-to-date approach

  • New products for the nuclear engineering industry: trends and projects.

  • Funding of SC Rosatom projects: optimal format and requirements

At the venue for the VII International Forum ATOMEXPO 2015 there will also be a special exhibition featuring leading Russian and foreign companies in nuclear and related industries.

3,544 representatives of 600 organizations took part in the Business Program of the ATOMEXPO 2014 Forum, including 283 foreign companies from 42 countries.
