The Excellence of French Expertise in Nuclear Human Capacity Building

French High-commissioner for atomic energy@IAEA 2018 HRD Conference

In 2018, France’s High Commissioner for Atomic Energy and I2EN Chairman chaired the third IAEA International Conference on Human Resource Development for Nuclear Power Programmes in Seoul, South Korea.

‘The I2EN represents and coordinates the French offer in nuclear Human Capacity Building (HCB) abroad in order to make today’s embarking countries the nuclear countries of tomorrow.’

France has been sharing its knowledge and know-how in nuclear human capacity building with other countries for many decades. Sharing this expertise has contributed to making those countries the major nuclear players they are today.
