Fermi course: Leading a nuclear business. Competence development for academic teachers, Uppsala, Sweden, 29th - 30th May 2017

On 29th and 30th of May 2017 dr. Tiselj attended a workshop for teachers in the field of education in nuclear engineering organized by INBEx (Institute for Nuclear Business Excellence) in cooperation with the ENEN (European Nuclear Education Network) association. The course was organized at the University of Uppsala by a former professor of the university and later associate of Vattenfall (owner of Swedish nuclear power plants) company and today’s INBEx Director of the Institute, Dr. Jan Blomgren.

The participants (8 teachers) divided into two independent team of operators of nuclear power plants for two days. For the period of six years, they had to provide for the efficient, safe and socially acceptable operation of the plant under the uncertain conditions of the deregulated electricity market. With confronted unexpected technical, economic and societal challenges (all based on real experiences of various plants around the world), the professors experienced the complexity of decision-making based on incomplete information and the various opinions of experts, public, regulators and employees.

According to attendee, participation in this workshop can help someone make better decisions and impact on improving communication between stakeholders in the nuclear energy industry
