Creating Value from Knowledge   #NIKnowledge

Equip yourself and your organisation with top expertise for the effective capture, transfer, and implementation of knowledge
Knowledge Management is vital for the nuclear industry, ensuring competent teams and developing a higher standard of professionalism in the workplace. Following on from the IAEA 3rd International Nuclear Knowledge Management Conference, November, Vienna, attendees will discover the importance of today's global knowledge economy and latest ISO standards development in Knowledge Management, Asset Management, and the revised knowledge requirements for Quality Management.

Latest KM best-practice
Delegates will gain insight from KM experts with global, regulatory, and nuclear industry experience dealing with people, processes, and tools for KM. Hear about practices in similar industries and look ahead to what's next through a series of thought-provoking presentations. Plus, take part in our Nuclear Knowledge Café to listen, share and shape professional and practitioner thinking on key topics.

Who should attend?
Open to all with an interest. This seminar is designed to bring together specialists with decision makers and managers across the field in roles that have a functional element or accountability for Knowledge Management or maintenance of the company knowledge.

If you’re involved in management of people, processes, or tools for KM or in any position where you deal with the capture or transfer of knowledge, this conference will be valuable. It will also interest business planning strategists, IT architects, risk and change management, intellectual learning and skills, Information Management managers and technicians, communicators, and more.

Ideal for companies with staff operating in this field across the nuclear industry or who have plenty of KM expertise and wish to top up with nuclear experience, this conference is not to be missed.
