IAEA Scientific Forum


Jump to...


Partner and Head of Nuclear George Borovas (Tokyo-Project Development & Finance) spoke at the IAEA Scientific Forum on Tuesday, September 18. The Scientific Forum is an annual event held during the General Conference of the IAEA that gathers representatives from all Member States. The objective of the Forum is to make science accessible to a general audience and policy makers, and to highlight the benefits of nuclear science and applications for development. This year’s Forum explored the contribution nuclear science and technology can make to address the challenges of climate change in the areas of mitigation, monitoring and adaptation.

George gave a presentation on the challenges to financing nuclear projects, when nuclear power could play a significant role in reducing emissions while also providing needed growth in electricity expansion, upon which future economic growth depends.
