UAE takes the lead of Arabic countries with the 24th WiN

Overview

  • Release Date: September 05, 2016

The 24th WiN Global Conference is the latest milestone for the ENEC WiN UAE chapter, established in 2014. As the first chapter to be formed in the Middle East, it has played an active role in recent annual conferences in Australia (2014) and Austria (2015).

Hosting the WiN Global conference in Abu Dhabi this year holds profound significance. Not only will we be making history by hosting it in an Arab nation for the first time, but the UAE is actively committed to using the peaceful application of nuclear energy to address climate change. In such a historically oil-rich region, that shows bold determination in reducing carbon emissions and ensuring long-term energy sustainability.

The Global Annual Conference of Women in Nuclear Energy (WiN) in November will be under the patronage of H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation, President of the General Women’s Union, Chairwoman of Motherhood and Childhood Supreme Council with the participation of delegations from around the world to celebrate women’s achievements in the nuclear energy sector.

The list of speakers are pioneers in the field of nuclear energy from all over the world including Adrienne Kelbie, Chief Executive, Office for Nuclear Regulation (UK); Aayda Al Shehhi, Director of Radiation Safety Department, Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation; Kristine L. Svinicki, Commissioner, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and Agneta Rising, General Director, World Nuclear Association.
