The purpose of the symposium is to bring together global stakeholders in support of IAEA safeguards. It is an opportunity for Member State safeguards regulatory authorities, the research and development (R&D) community, industry and civil society to identify challenges and opportunities for IAEA safeguards, showcase research, share ideas, and build partnerships.
Reflecting on the Past and Anticipating the Future
Reflect — celebrate the historic anniversaries and achievements thus far, building common understanding of experience gained and key milestones that have shaped safeguards, and reflecting on experience gained and lessons learned over the course of decades of safeguards implementation and on where we are today;
Anticipate — anticipating nuclear energy’s role in addressing global challenges, envisage how the IAEA’s operating environment will likely evolve over the coming decades, and identify what this means for safeguards in the form of both new challenges and opportunities; and
Inspire — based on lessons from the past and insights about the future, identify actions to take, and stakeholders and partnerships to support them, towards ensuring a safeguards system that is well prepared for continued success in the decades ahead.
NOTE: INDICO (Paper submissions) will be available as of 14 February 2022.
