IYNC Bulletin – July 2018
IYNCWIN18 was a true success with more than 420 participants from 37 countries – young professionals, senior leaders and mentors – all together for an unforgettable week-long event in beautiful San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina. During the Congress, out of many considerations and stimulating discussions, there are two major takeaways that I would like to reflect on and to bring with me for the next two years, while leading the IYNC network as the newly elected IYNC President. The benefits of nuclear science and technology, in all its applications, needs to be communicated effectively outside of the nuclear community. I believe promoting a global platform for open discussion, with accurate information and without prejudices, it essential for a prosperous future. If the young generation doesn't do it, who else will? We discussed extensively during IYNCWIN18 about the need to innovate in the nuclear industry and the I4N, Innovation for Nuclear. I believe that innovating, not only in technology, but also the culture, is paramount for our generation in nuclear.

Two years after the historical COP21 conference in Paris, the COP23 conference was held in Bonn, Germany, in November 2017. The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and over 140 nations worked to implement their pledges to limit climate-change, keep a global temperature rise well below 2°C in this century, and transform our societies towards a low-carbon world.
IYNC Bulletin – September 2017
The International Youth Nuclear Congress (IYNC) was formed in 1997 by a group of enthusiast young professionals. They believed that young generation organizations around the world could be more effective in the communication and transfer of knowledge regarding peaceful applications of nuclear science and technology if their efforts were integrated globally; thus, providing a platform for sharing ideas, transferring knowledge and networking.

Collaboration is the process for people or organizations to achieve something together. As our societies become increasingly global a growing role for collaborations is observed. Expanding connectivity, digitalisation and cross- functional teamwork have made collaborations a necessity.

IYNC Bulletin – March 2014
The nuclear industry is growing in Asia where 49 nuclear power reactors are under construction. One of the main objectives of the 2012 – 2014 term IYNC officers was to develop the IYNC network in this region. Besides our historic partners such as South Korea and Japan, IYNC has made great progress in extending its network to India and China. Those two countries have started their local YGN (Young Generation in Nuclear) with the help of IYNC and are willing to be involved more in our activities and to take a significant place in the IYNC congress.
