Is your country considering nuclear power?

The IAEA is here to help!

We have created an interactive e-learning series explaining the IAEA's Milestones Approach to introducing a nuclear power programme. This approach is based on three phases and covers the 19 infrastructure issues that need to be addressed, and brings decades of expertise to life. Both newcomers and those expanding their nuclear power programmes may benefit from the e-learning series.

IAEA | Nuclear Cogeneration


This course provides broad understanding of the concept of nuclear cogeneration and its related technologies, as well as the available IAEA tools and toolkits to support Member States interested in cogeneration and non-electric applications using nuclear energy.

Duration: approx. 30 min | Interactivity: Self-study | Languages: English | Certificate: N/A | Target audience: Young professionals, stakeholders, and new entrants to the area.


Multimedia on Nuclear Reactor Physics has been developed and used by the Spanish Technical University of Catalonia-Barcelona Tech (UPC) for the UPC's master course programme in nuclear engineering, since 2001 and in cooperation with several organizations, including the IAEA.

The IAEA considers Multimedia on Nuclear Reactor Physics a unique and very valuable learning material. It consists of about 800 slides in four languages; Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. The figures, animations, tables and equations in the slides enable easier understanding of the nuclear theories. The IAEA endorses to use MNRP as a supplementary material for  professors and lecturers at universities and training centres, but also directly for students to broaden and deepen their knowledge. 

We recommend that each student, trainee, employee or lecturer should download his/her own multimedia through this space, the registration only requires some information for statistical proposes, but will enable you to get notifications and access to new versions of the material!

This e-learning resource is the output of the IAEA Nuclear Energy Management School in Japan was held at the University of Tokyo in Tokyo and at the venue in Tokai-mura jointly with Japan Nuclear Human Resource Development Network, Japan Atomic Energy Agency, the University of Tokyo, and Japan Atomic Industry Forum. The purpose of this school was to provide a unique international educational experience aimed at building future leadership to manage nuclear energy programmes to promising young professionals from rising developing countries. The presentations and videos cover a range of topics, including Energy Planning and Economics, Nuclear Infrastructure, Nuclear Laws, Safety, Security,  Safeguards (3S), Radiation Risks, Nuclear Power Reactor Technology,  Fuel Cycle and Waste Management,  Knowledge Management. 

VVERA pilot study for consolidating and preserving VVER Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) safety related knowledge, which is scattered in many countries and in different languages, facing a serious issue in terms of getting lost.

This initiative is part of the Practical Arrangement signed between the IAEA and the Institute of Energy and Transport of Joint Research Centre - European Commission (EC-JRC) where a closer cooperation in the development of Multi Media Material for Nuclear Knowledge Dissemination and Education is indicated.

A 10 multimedia education modules on VVER RPV Integrity Assessment (Expert Modules) was successfully completed. Each Module contains a quiz at the end and has reference courses attached.

All working papers were collected centrally and stored in a protected database, which is a document database located within Online Data & Information Network (ODIN) of the EC-JRC and managed by the Institute for Energy and Transport.

You may find also a list of experts involved in the Multimedia Training Course on VVER Reactor Pressure Vessel Embrittlement and a handout.
