Guests from many countries, participants of the congress, will discuss the advantages of nuclear power engineering, its influence on social and economic development of the country and potential challenges of its abandonment.

Business part of the Forum also envisages round tables with the following topical areas of focus: “Role of NFC (nuclear fuel cycle) at the current stage of nuclear power industry development”, “Global nuclear engineering. Opportunities for global and local partnerships”, “Power engineering industry, cooperation in the global market”, “Comprehensive solution for staff training and development of nuclear infrastructure for the national nuclear programs”, “Operation and maintenance of NPP – contemporary approach”, “New products of atomic industry: promising development trends and projects. Funding of SC Rosatom projects, definitive framework and requirements”.

Special attention will be given to issues of the safe use of nuclear technologies, handling of radioactive wastes (RAW) and spent nuclear fuel (SNF). The participants of round table “Economic efficiency, new technologies for nuclear- and radiation-hazardous facilities decommissioning and for RAW handling as an efficient safety strategy” will discuss the Russian and foreign experience in dealing with spent nuclear fuel. They will share knowledge in the field of safe isolation of radioactive wastes, RAW industrial processing and conditioning technologies and technologies of decommissioning of the nuclear industry’s facilities. In addition, the speakers will bring up the topics of relevancy of the Russian experience in generation of regulatory model for RAW burial for the countries which are planning to develop nuclear power.

Mr. Boris Myasoyedov, Academician of RAS, will act as moderator of round table. The following persons are expected to take part in its work: Oleg Kryukov, Director for Public Policy on Radioactive Waste, Spent Nuclear Fuel and Nuclear Decommissioning, Rosatom State Corporation; Ludovic Devos, Regional Vice-President, AREVA (France); Larisa Seke, Head of Nuclear Fuel Department, Deputy Project Manager for Handling of Fuel in Canisters, NPP Paks (Hungary); Yurai Rovniy, Head of Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Radioactive Waste, JSC “Slovak Powerplants”; Georg Braehler, Technical Director, Nukem Technologies GmbH; Andreas Weihard, Director Business Development, Nukem Technologies GmbH and representatives of such companies as Federal Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety (JSC FCNRS), Federal State Unitary Enterprise - united ecological, scientific and research Centre of decontamination of radioactive waste (RAW) and environmental protection, Experimental demonstration center for decommissioning of uranium-graphite nuclear reactors, Federal state Unitary Enterprise for Radioactive Waste Management RosRAO, Production Association “MAYAK”, The Federal State Unitary Enterprise National Operator for Radioactive Waste Management, The Nuclear Safety Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IBRAE), “NEOLANT” and representatives of the Division for radiation protection and radioactive waste of the atomic energy Agency of the (NEA/OECD).
