2012 edition

“Atoms for the Future” was held in October 2012 and aimed at providing a wide overview of the daily life of Nuclear Power Plants. Both technical and human factors were discussed, such as site organization, relations between the site and external parties, outage management, heavy components replacement, fuel in NPPs or R&D support.

The program included the visits of AREVA facilities in Chalon area (Saint-Marcel and Creusot Forge) and EDF Nogent Nuclear Power Plant. These visits were followed by two days of high level lectures in Paris. Find here the complete program of the event : AtomsfortheFuture_Program2012.
