There is wide consensus within the scientific community that deep decarbonization of the energy sector is necessary in the next few decades to tackle climate change, and this can hardly be done without using all available low-carbon energy technologies including nuclear energy. 

Yet, nuclear has little appeal to the public opinion and decision makers. Reasons of public adversity to the nuclear option are often rooted in misconception or ideological preconceptions. 

The event aims to reach the public with top speakers and hands-on activities about nuclear technology and its future perspectives.

Join us for a two days full immersion in current and perspective nuclear science and technology, explained in clear terms that are understandable to a general, non-educated public. Visit the nuclear power plant that provides clean energy to Slovenia, Croatia and also Italy. Have a first hand experience of the control room simulator, in which crews that operate power plants are trained, and visit the World of Energy Museum just next the power plant.

Learn why nuclear power is vital in contrasting climate change and how latest and future technologies mill make it an even safer and affordable power source.

Discover the basic facts about radioactivity and other aspects of nuclear science and technology through an internationally sourced exhibition and discuss your interest in nuclear, or maybe your future career, with young professionals and scientist from many different countries. We look forward to meet you at Nuclear Days in Trieste!


Vi è ampio consenso nella comunità scientifica sul fatto che una profonda decarbonizzazione del settore energetico sia un passo necessario da compiere nei prossimi decenni al fine di contrastare il cambiamento climatico, e che tale obiettivo sia imprescindibile dall’utilizzo di tutte le fonti di energia non fossili, inclusa la fonte nucleare. Ciò nonostante, l’energia nucleare gode scarso fascino presso l’opinione pubblica e il mondo politico. Le ragioni dell’avversità al nucleare sono spesso basate su conoscenze errate o preconcetti ideologici.

Questo evento si prefigge di raggiungere il pubblico con relatori di alto livello e attività interattive sull’energia nucleare e le sue prospettive future.

Unisciti a noi per due giornate intense alla scoperta delle tecnologie nucleari presenti e future, spiegate in termini chiari e comprensibili ad un pubblico generico. Visita la centrale nucleare che fornisce energia pulita a Slovenia, Croazia e anche all’Italia. Vieni a vedere da vicino il simulatore della sala controllo, dove si allenano gli operatori delle centrali, e visita il World of Energy Museum a pochi passi dalla centrale.

Scopri perché l’energia nucleare è vitale nel contrasto del cambiamento climatico e come le tecnologie più all’avanguardia la rendano sempre più sicura ed economica.

Scopri i principi base della radioattività ed altri aspetti scientifici del nucleare attraverso una mostra internazionale e discuti il tuo interesse per il nucleare – o magari la tua futura carriera, con altri giovani del settore e scienziati provenienti da diversi Paesi. Ti aspettiamo a Trieste, ai Nuclear Days!
