In this issue
This summer edition of ENS News takes on a celebratory
theme as 50-year nuclear anniversaries are marked in various parts
of the world. These events provide an important opportunity both
to appraise and take stock of the past, freeing the space for
informed projections for the future.
Continuing in an analytical vein in this issue,
there is an insight into the challenges of the future of the European
Nuclear Industry in a context of rapid change from ENS President,
Bertrand Barré. On the R&D front, you will find a report
on the Belgian Nuclear Society’s roundtable entitled “Nuclear
R&D in Europe: status and future”.
This period of reflection is compounded by the
lightness in spirit at this time of year, as we all unwind before
the autumn. In this spirit, you will find an ENS News that is
somewhat reduced in volume, quality not quantity being of course
at the top of our concerns!
The ENS General Assembly in Vienna provided the
summer’s sounding board for ideas, and we hope this issue
will provide ideal material for pondering thoughts at this time
of relative quiet.
Wishing you a very restful holiday,
