Fourth Summer Institute Alumni Workshop

 The WNU Fourth Summer Institute Alumni meeting will be held in March 2018 in Bariloche, Argentina. Registrations are open!

The WNU Summer Institute Alumni Assembly has been renamed Extended Leadership Development Workshop and the next one will be in Bariloche, Argentina,  alongside the  joint IYNC2018-26th WiN Global annual conference.  It is the next step in the Summer Institute evolution.  The SI alumni who register to the joint IYNC2018-26th WiN Global annual conference, 11 - 17 March 2018, can not only participate in the IYNC 2018 activities, including the technical visits, but also can attend the WNU Extended Leadership Development Workshop from 14 - 15 March 2018, at no extra charge.  

The WNU Extended Leadership Development Workshop is open to all previous fellows and mentors from 2005 to 2017 and includes invited leader presentations, case studies and workshops on effective communications, leadership, and decommissioning and remediation. It is a great opportunity to exchange experience and share the results of the Summer Institute Networks for Nuclear Innovation (formerly the FIG).
