The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has interrupted many aspects of everyday life, including the opportunity for many students across the globe to celebrate their graduation through an in-person commencement ceremony. This year many students may not receive traditional graduation ceremonies and festivities, while transitioning to professional careers or to graduate studies.
At the same time, the world is also faced with the challenge of reducing CO2 emissions. As the single largest source of non-emitting electricity in the developed world, nuclear energy plays a very important role in climate change mitigation. And today’s nuclear science and technology graduates will play a large role in decarbonising the electricity sector and paving way for a clean energy future.
In this context, the NEA Global Forum on Nuclear Education, Science, Technology and Policy is organising an online event to celebrate and recognise the accomplishments of the global nuclear science and technology graduating class of 2021.
9:00-10:30 CEST and 16:30-17:00 CEST
Session 1: 9:00-10:30 CEST
Session 2: 16:30-18:00 CEST
The event is free and open to the public, and will feature a session to answer questions submitted ahead of time. Please note that the number of participants is limited and registrations are on a first come, first served basis.
