The primary motivation of the ENEN+ project is to substantially contribute to the revival of the interest of young generations in careers in the nuclear sector. This is to be achieved by pursuing the following main objectives:

  • Attract new talents to careers in nuclear.
  • Develop the attracted talents beyond academic curricula.
  • Increase the retention of attracted talents in nuclear careers.
  • Involve the nuclear stakeholders within the EU and beyond.
  • Sustain the revived interest for nuclear careers.

The ENEN+ consortium will focus on the learners and careers in the following nuclear disciplines:

  • Nuclear reactor engineering and safety
  • Waste management and geological disposal
  • Radiation protection
  • Medical applications

The task of the participants is to compose a 3-minute video on one or more of the four nuclear disciplines. Suggestions for projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Jobs in nuclear
  • Create a story about nuclear
  • History of nuclear science and technology
  • Future of nuclear technology
  • Nuclear in daily life
  • Radiation for health

The competition is open to secondary school pupils, who are currently enrolled in secondary schools in European States. Teams must have two pupil members and one teacher.
The 15 finalist teams will be invited and financially supported to attend the summer school in Budapest, Hungary. No more than one video submission per team can be considered.
