09:08 / 04.03.2020

On March 3, the Day of Atomic Technologies was held at the Belarusian State University, an educational and entertainment event for the students from technical universities. The event was organized by the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom with the support of the Belarusian Ministry of Energy and the Minsk Atomic Energy Information Center. Five years straight, the Day of Atomic Technologies is held to promote knowledge about the atomic industry among students.


The event was attended by over 150 students from relevant departments of top Belarusian universities. For many, this is not their first event.


“One can always meet like-minded people here, learn about new developments and technologies in atomic energy,” said Ms. Lilia Dulinets, Deputy Director of the Department for Nuclear Energy under the Belarusian Ministry of Energy, opening the event. “Belarus is building its first nuclear power plant, but we are no novices in this sector—specialized R&D institutes have now been active for several decades, cooperation in the field of nuclear energy has been established with Russia, other countries, with the International Atomic Energy Agency. The nuclear industry knows no boundaries. The knowledge gained in Belarus can prove useful not just domestically—it will enjoy demand anywhere in the world where new nuclear power plants or research reactors are being built.”


This year, the Day of Atomic Technologies’ attendees got a unique opportunity to talk to Mikhail Chudakov, Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Nuclear Energy of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

“Well-trained professionals are important for the successful implementation of nuclear power programs,” said IAEA Deputy Director General Chudakov. “The Day of Atomic Technologies provides an opportunity for students and experts to review developments in the field and discuss the future of nuclear technologies. Engaging with students through initiatives such as this one helps build the nuclear workforce of tomorrow”, he added.


During the event, an exhibition dedicated to the nuclear industry’s 75th anniversary arranged by the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Minsk was held. Also, everyone had the chance to get a virtual tour of the nuclear power plant in VR goggles, compete in intellectual quizzes and the “atomic” sprint.
