On Friday, April 14 a small delegation traveled to IAEA headquarters to meet with supporters of International Youth Nuclear activities. The first stop was a meeting with Deputy Director General Victor Morougov. Mr.Mourogov provided his views into the future of nuclear science and technology and was interested in the successes of the Congress. We were very pleased to see that he had already read about the Congress in a nuclear publication, a very remarkable turn-around time. We presented Mr. Mourgov with IYNC memorabilia and had a prime photo opportunity.
Throughout the day’s meetings, IAEA repeatedly supported the activities of IYNC as we discussed ideas for increasing participation from developing countries and ways to further communication between meetings. The support of IAEA is instrumental to making IYNC a truly International organization.
