Conclusions and Recommendations
 
Item 3, Special Session on Human Resources
Development (HRD) Strategy for
Nuclear Science, Technology and Applications
 
FNCA Senior Officials Meeting (SOM)
December 2, 2003, Okinawa, Japan
 
1. HRD is recognized to be an important component for the sustainable development of nuclear science and technology applications.
2. The concern was expressed by the majority of the meeting participants that the maintenance of nuclear knowledge and experience is at risk because of declining numbers of experts due to retirement and the lack of incoming young nuclear scientists and engineers.
3. The HRD strategy should be authorized and supported by the high level government management responding to the national nuclear program as a long term commitment. Enhancement of nuclear capability to address future applications of nuclear energy should be part of the HRD strategy.
4. The setting up of a small high level task force by FNCA is desirable to discuss the strategy for HRD.
5. Regional and interregional cooperation enhance national HRD and international infrastructure of human resources. Therefore, FNCA and the exchange program for HRD sponsored by Japan should play important roles. In this context, specific collaboration of the FNCA with ANENT of IAEA should be defined in the near future with full consultation with IAEA and other relevant organizations.
6. The enhancement of nuclear knowledge is needed to promote applications of nuclear science and technology. Government and private firms are encouraged to provide special fellowships to students majoring in nuclear science and technology.
7. Training materials including e-learning materials should be efficiently produced by sharing works among FNCA countries but not overlapping relevant IAEA activities. Setting up a task force for planning and working for preparation of training materials on a work-sharing basis is desirable.
8. Analysis of the database on HRD should be completed early in 2004. The result of the analysis may be reflected in revising the HRD strategy in each country, depending on their national policy. The new revised HRD strategy based on the database analysis should be reported to the HRD Workshop in 2004. This database could be used to identify gaps between the current situation and the needs of each country.
