This contest is to reward innovative ideas focused on nuclear technologies or applications that will contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will also provide a visible platform for young employees in the energy industry to consider and create innovative solutions.
How does it work?
I4N aims to be the premier world-wide competition for winners from national or regional nuclear innovation contests. Winners will need to present their idea during IYNC’s Congress to a panel of nuclear experts that will judge the contestants and choose the overall international winner for I4N contest.
During the first annual contest at IYNCWIN18 congress in Bariloche, three teams competed against each other representing innovation contests “FR17 Young Innovator Challenge” (IAEA YGN event), “Spark!” (Franco-British contest) and “Innovatome” (French YGN contest). The professionalism and dynamism of the different contestants made I4N 2018 a great success and it will be certainly be continued.
