On the 8th of December 2014, a Vietnamese delegation led by Mr Hoang Anh Tuan, Director General of the Vietnam Atomic Energy Agency visited the HAEA and was received by Mr Szabolcs Hullán, Deputy Director General. The visitors were primarily interested in the opportunities to train nuclear specialists within the framework of cooperation between the two countries.
The new issue of the HAEA’s Nuclear Safety Bulletin is available.
In May 2015, an IAEA Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) mission will take place in Hungary. International experts will review the Hungarian national regulatory infrastructure for safety and security against IAEA recommendations and international best practices. As part of the preparation for the mission, on 1-2 October 2014 a two-day meeting was held at the Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority in Budapest.
The Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority - following the tradition of previous years - joined the European Heritage Days program series this year as well, and opens its doors to visitors for one day. Guided visits start on September the 20th (Saturday), 2014 at 2, 3 and 4pm. During the open day activities there will be presentations about interesting topics such as the licensing process of the new units of the Paks nuclear power plant, or terrorism targeting nuclear objectives. After the presentations, the HAEA’s Centre for Emergency Response, Training and Analysis (CERTA) can be visited in guided groups, where the activities of the Centre will be presented based on a simulated nuclear accident. The language of the programs is Hungarian.
The training course organized by the IAEA and the HAEA and held at the HAEA headquarters in Budapest between 30 June and 4 July 2014 was attended by 22 participants from 14 countries.
