Program

Preliminary programme

The program is divided in two days: Wednesday June 8th and Thursday June 9th.

During the first day our key note speakers will present their view on the current nuclear market, each from their perspective angles.

The second day is characterized by deep dive sessions into the three main topics of the event - Long Term Operation, New Build and Advanced Reactors. The sessions are hosted by topical experts and the speakers provide unique opportunities to share and learn.

You are free to choose which session you want to join.
