NE•RS 2019 programme
Current strong trend to prevent climate change turns the attention to use nuclear power for the electricity production. A number of world leaders, respected think-tanks and international institutions claim that nuclear is ideal for dealing with climate change, because it is only low emission and highly available source we have it hands. That is why the focus of the NE•RS 2019 Conference is put on both, the evidence, that nuclear power is an emission-free energy source, and that Czechia without nuclear has no possibility to comply with the goals to prevent climate change.
8:30registration check-in, delivery of conference materials
The first part of the conference program (chaired by Rut BÍZKOVÁ, former Minister of the Environment and Director Emeritus of the Technology Agency) will focus on the discussion on international and national strategies prioritizing the nuclear power as an important part of energy mix, and significant contributor to the clean and emission-free environment.
