In the lead-up to IYNC2020 Sydney, the Australian Young Generation in Nuclear will be hosting a series of short webinars through 2018 and 2019, showcasing a wide range of nuclear professionals from around the world.
Topics will touch on a diverse range of subjects, in alignment with the IYNC2020 theme of Diversity in Nuclear.
Through the webinar format, the geographical barrier to collaboration and education is easily overcome, allowing the young nuclear community access to the experience of international experts.
Webinars will be hosted live on the AusYGN Youtube channel, facilitating in-depth coverage of subjects whilst enabling young professionals to discuss their ideas and have their questions answered by speakers in a live-stream from the comfort of their own home or office.
The inaugural webinar – presented by Dr Mark Ho (Australian Nuclear Association), covered the current landscape in nuclear energy technology, as well as a discussion of the economic policy factors around Australia’s energy mix.
These webinars will strengthen long-running collaborative relationships between the AusYGN members and international partner YGNs, as well as the industry, generating value for the global nuclear community through education and knowledge sharing.
