The official opening of the business program of the International Youth Nuclear Congress 2020 was held in Sydney on 9 March. ROSATOM as the Congress partner took part in the ceremony.

To me personally as well as to ROSATOM, this is an opportunity of great value,” noted Vadim Titov.

The International Youth Nuclear Congress was founded in 1997. This is a non-profit international organization and network that unites students and young professionals from 51 countries, who represent various scientific and industrial areas. The organization’s mission is to develop new approaches to the increase of public awareness about the advantages of nuclear power as a component of the balanced energy mix, to support further peaceful use of nuclear science and technology for the benefit of mankind, and to pass down the knowledge from the today’s generation of leading scientists to the generation to come.
