ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Decommissioning & Environmental Sciences
The mission of the Decommissioning and Environmental Sciences (DES) Division is to promote the development and use of those skills and technologies associated with the use of nuclear energy and the optimal management and stewardship of the environment, sustainable development, decommissioning, remediation, reutilization, and long-term surveillance and maintenance of nuclear-related installations, and sites. The target audience for this effort is the membership of the Division, the Society, and the public at large.

Nuclear Science Week: the ANS local and student sections events
Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is a celebration designed to focus local, regional, national, and international interest on all aspects of nuclear science. National events marking the 11th annual NSW took place October 19–23 in Washington, D.C. This year’s theme was “Think Clean. Think Solutions. Think Nuclear.”
Several ANS local and student sections from around the world organized their own events to celebrate NSW, as follows:
Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by YMG

William Murray (GE-Hitachi)
Eric G. Meyer
Timothy M. Crook (MCR Performance Solutions)
Eileen Cullen (American Nuclear Society)
Session Chairs/Organizers: William Murray (GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy), Eric Meyer (Generation Atomic)
Unimpressed by who you see on your ballot each election? Think you could do better? We want to make YOU a publicly elected professional! This event will demonstrate why the nuclear profession needs people with STEM expertise writing laws, and we will give YOU the fundamentals of starting a run for public office. Come and speak with our diverse group of panelists that have already expanded their STEM careers through service in local, state, and federal leadership positions as elected officials and candidates for office. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions, get inspired, and wear a lab coat in solidarity when science replaces suits in our seats of public service!
Disclaimer: This event includes members from across the political spectrum that have come together in support of science and the rise of science-literate candidates for public office. Any statements made by participants reflect only their individual views, not the views of their employers, the ANS, or YMG-ANS.
Eric Meyer (Generation Atomic)
