Students and professionals below the age of 35 can now submit entries to the IAEA’s 2020 International Essay Competition on Nuclear Security for Students and Early Career Professionals in cooperation with the International Nuclear Security Education Network (INSEN). The contest is part of the IAEA’s International Conference on Nuclear Security: Sustaining and Strengthening Efforts, taking place from 10 to 14 February 2020 at IAEA headquarters in Vienna.

“Through this competition, the IAEA hopes to learn about innovative ideas and perspectives on the future of nuclear security,” said Senior Nuclear Security Officer Darren Chen, the scientific secretary for the 2020 conference. “The conference themes may serve as an inspiration for the essays, but we welcome entries related to any nuclear security topics. They, in particular, encourage qualified women and authors from developing countries to participate.”

Through the Conference, the IAEA will raise awareness to maintain and further strengthen national nuclear security regimes, review the status of nuclear security efforts, promote IAEA nuclear security guidance and good practices and discuss further enhancements of IAEA nuclear security activities as well as the central role of the IAEA. Other topics on the agenda include international legally and non-legally binding instruments, national nuclear security regimes, emerging technologies and the digital age, international cooperation, and information exchange.
