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.
Nuclear Criticality Safety
NCSD provides communication among nuclear criticality safety professionals through the development of standards, the evolution of training methods and materials, the presentation of technical data and procedures, and the creation of specialty publications. In these ways, the division furthers the exchange of technical information on nuclear criticality safety with the ultimate goal of promoting the safe handling of fissionable materials outside reactors.

The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) launched the Nuclear Education, Skills, and Technology Framework in February 2019 with the aim to address the concerns of the NEA Member Countries about the potential loss of knowledge due to the retirement of the current workforce and consequently the need to transfer this knowledge to the young generation.
The NEST Framework is a multilateral initiative that, through international collaborative research projects, trains and facilitates the skills development and training of the next generation of nuclear professionals and thus nurtures the next generation of nuclear leaders.
NEST helps countries to leverage resources and address short- and long-term educational and research needs through:
• Developing training activities in challenging nuclear projects;
• Building a talent pipeline from universities to industry and regulators by preparing the workforce with the skills and competencies specific to the nuclear sector;
• Building long-lasting partnerships between universities, industries and with all nuclear stakeholders to create a global nuclear network of fellows, mentors and organisations.
This panel will present the results of the first year of the NEST Framework Activities and Projects.
