Perspective of international activities on nuclear knowledge management and proposals for further refinements
by Bum-Jin Chung
International Journal of Nuclear Knowledge Management (IJNKM), Vol. 2, No. 2, 2006

Abstract: Concerns are raised world-wide on the ageing of nuclear manpower, widespread retirements of senior workers within the past several years, the decline of nuclear education and training and the resulting shortage of nuclear manpower supply. The OECD/NEA and the IAEA started formulating activities regarding these concerns, which elaborate on the ways of expanding these activities. At this moment, it will be worthwhile to review the programme and activities from the viewpoint of their origins. This paper discusses the nature of the issue, proposes a conceptual model for manpower demand and supply, and raises an issue regarding the possibility of manpower shortage propagation from the advanced countries to the developing countries. International activities are also reviewed and proposals for further refinements of nuclear knowledge management activities are made.
