International Atomic Energy Agency

About Us

The International Atomic Energy Agency is the world's central intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical co-operation in the nuclear field. It works for the safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology, contributing to international peace and security and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

What's the importance of the "Innovation for the Future of Nuclear Energy – A Global Forum"?

The forum presents an opportunity to gather feedback on the development of innovative technologies that would be potentially relevant to improving safe, reliable and sustainable performance of nuclear power plants. IAEA Member States currently operating, or actively pursuing nuclear power, could benefit from innovative solutions as well as from an understanding of how they are being applied. The forum's unique approach-focussing on demonstrated innovation and extending the scope beyond traditional nuclear power stakeholders—provides the opportunity to uncover novel solutions to address many challenges facing operating organizations worldwide.
