Nuclear Engineering International is an in-depth technical magazine for the worldwide civil nuclear industry. The magazine offers news, opinion, market reviews, and articles on the front-end fuel cycle, through to operations, maintenance, NDE, ALARA, to Fukushima, decommissioning and radwaste, all at a technical level that is robust whilst remaining accessible to interested industry professionals in all fields.

Original nuclear industry reports are also published: quarterly nuclear electricity generation statistics for the entire world (‘load factors league tables’) and a tabular overview of the installed nuclear fleet in the World Nuclear Industry Handbook, a single volume reference guide that also includes a buyer’s guide, articles and industry contacts. Another highlight is the September fuel issue, with comprehensive fuel market review and fuel data tables.

Since its first issue in 1956, Nuclear Engineering International has been an independent voice in the nuclear industry that goes beyond the news headlines to explain new developments and market trends in technical detail. Visit www.neimagazine.com for more information.

NUGENIA is an international association dedicated to the research and development of nuclear fission technologies, with a focus on Generation II and III nuclear plants. It gathers stakeholders from industry, research, safety organisations and academia, committed to develop joint R&D projects in the field.. The work of NUGENIA is organised in six technical areas and two cross-cutting areas, within a general scope defined by the NUGENIA Global Vision published in 2015 and the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda published by SNETP, the European stakeholder forum for nuclear technology.


NucNet is an independent global news agency. NucNet operates a 24/7 service reporting the facts behind key nuclear issues such as safety and security, radiation impact and protection, and the complexities of national and international nuclear energy policies. NucNet was created in 1990 with the support of the European Nuclear Society as a response to the growing need for both accurate and rapid information about nuclear energy. At NucNet’s Central Office in Brussels, journalists and researchers analyse information, check the facts, and produce verified news and information bulletins that are sent to subscribers by email. For more information see www.nucnet.org

The European Demolition Association, EDA, was founded in 1978 and is the European platform for national demolition associations, demolition contractors and suppliers.
Every year, EDA organizes several activities to gather demolition industry stakeholders from all over Europe. The most important one is the Annual Convention, a meeting that includes a technical part with presentations about key topics and optional leisure activities. For 2017, EDA organizes a trade fair, “DDR EXPO 2017”, that will bring together professionals from three different industries: demolition, decontamination and recycling.

EDA represents thousands of companies, through its national associations and direct memberships.

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) contribute up to 45 percent of total employment and up to 33 percent of national income (GDP) in emerging economies. But SMEs face unique challenges: three out of five businesses fail within the first few months of operation. Causes to the failure include limited market access, limited access to information, finances and technology and unfavorable policy and regulatory environment.
