Plasma science has the potential to produce game changing technologies with applications in medicine, industry, water purification, food and agriculture, offering unparalleled opportunities to address many global challenges, such as climate change and zoonotic diseases. For example, plasma-based technology can be used for bacteria and virus de-activation, including COVID-19 and all viral and bacterial pathogens, or to purify water and make a major impact on our ability to address climate change and sustainability. These emerging applications can help strengthen Member States’ ability to address these critical societal problems.

The IAEA looks forward to support existing and novel applications of plasmas and plasma related technology, facilitate information exchange and help strengthen Member States’ research programmes in this field.


The purpose of the event is to gather information and build a common understanding of emerging applications of plasma science and technology, fostering practical ideas and proposals for joint initiatives aimed at fostering longer-term collaboration through IAEA mechanisms (such as coordinated research projects, networks and technical cooperation projects) for addressing global challenges.

Target Audience

The event will focus on applications of plasma science and technology, which is a multidisciplinary area covering many branches including plasma physics, chemistry, materials science, biology, engineering and industrial applications. Accordingly, the target audience for this event comprises, but is not limited to:

  • Research scientists engaged in plasma-based research;
  • Plasma technologists;
  • Entrepreneurs or stakeholders involved in applications of plasma-based technology;
  • Policymakers.
