I4N is IYNC`s International Innovation Contest. The purpose of the Innovation Contest is to reward innovative ideas focused on nuclear technologies or applications that will contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The contest will also give a platform for the visibility and discussion of these ideas and catalyze young energy into thinking about and creating innovative solutions.

  • IYNC first edition took place at the 2018 Congress in Bariloche, Argentina on 11- 17 March 2018.
