The School, hosted by the Government of the United Arab Emirates and Khalifa University, is part of continuing efforts by the IAEA to address the knowledge management challenges in the nuclear industry of many countries.

About 40 participants from GCC countries - Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates - are taking part in this training course. The programme of study, delivered by IAEA specialists and other international lecturers, covers the most important topics related to the nuclear energy sector.

Well, hopefully with the spread of nuclear related issues and studies in this program, UAE will help provide the regions throughout the ME with peaceful solutions for use of this technology.


"The generation of professionals who built and led the nuclear power industry for much of the past 50 years is approaching retirement and there are not enough students coming up through the educational system to take their place," IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano pointed out in his opening day message to the School's participants.

This situation is raising concerns among some countries about a possible shortage of skilled professionals in the nuclearfield in the coming decades, and the IAEA is doing all it can to help Member States address this issue. This School, being held in the United Arab Emirates, is part of Agency efforts to address thisproblem in the GCC area, Director General Amano said.
