The WNU Summer Institute is an intensive 270 hours leadership development programme held annually in different locations. This year, it will be held in Kobe and Fukushima, Japan in collaboration with the Japan Nuclear Human Resource Development Network. It offers dynamic lectures, invited leaders’ presentations, field trips to nuclear and industrial facilities, social events and team projects led by some of the world’s foremost authorities.  These cover the global energy setting and sustainable development, technology innovations, international safety regime, economics and project structuring.  Read about the planned technical tours of Fukushima Daiichi and Daini NPPs.

Participants will take place in a Networks for Nuclear Innovation project during the programme, where they will work in groups to investigate a topical issue in the nuclear industry and to make innovative proposals to address this issue. The results of the groups are compiled and published as a magazine. Read the 2019 Networks for Nuclear Innovation magazine.
Each WNU Summer Institute involves some 60 participants from approximately 30 countries, called Fellows, selected as promising nuclear professionals who have demonstrated strong leadership potential. WNU Fellows become part of an expanding global network of future leaders in the nuclear profession. Since the Summer Institute’s inception in 2005, a total of 1214 Fellows from 85 countries have successfully completed the WNU Summer Institute. Apply before 14 February, or contact WNU to reserve a place, to attend the Summer Institute 2020 in Japan.
