Human Capital Development Workshop

Szerző: Császár Gergely | 2009. július 15.

2009. szeptember 2-4-én kerül megrendezésre az olaszországi Ispraban  a  “Human Capital Development Workshop”, melyről részletesebben - angol nyelven - az alábbiakban olvashat.

Human Capital Development Workshop


Purpose: Promote development of a common understanding of the kinds of skills and expertise needed to support implementation of an evolving international safeguards system, exchanges of information and experience on what are effective human capital development programs to meet emerging demands for such skills/expertise, and future cooperation on specific human capital development activities to support international safeguards.


Scope: The workshop will address the types of expertise and skills needed to implement international safeguards in the future; training, recruitment and career development needs for people working on international safeguards, in the context of the strengthened safeguards system.  This includes technology development and implementation; information collection, integration, analysis and management; inspection; and systems analysis.  The workshop shall identify specific areas for future collaboration, such as:


  • A collaborative working group to collect education and training materials, record lessons-learned in educational and training programs, and consider identifying core curriculum elements for “safeguards certificate” programs at the university level
  • Establishment of a clearinghouse for hosting (and refreshing) education and training materials, nuclear infrastructures;
  • Joint training activities and facilities
  • Exchange programs


Participants: The focus would be on countries with advanced safeguards programs (e.g., Euratom and its Member States,  Canada, China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russia, United States), and on international/multilateral inspection agencies (IAEA, ABACC), industry, , …
