The working groups are comprised of experts from primarily academic institutions and other relevant stakeholders from NEA member and non-member countries.
They conduct studies and analyses in work areas related to the future of the nuclear sector, with a particular focus on educational and human capital issues. Outputs include internal discussion documents, topical workshops, published white papers, journal articles, editorials, and policy papers. Each working group develops a yearly work plan and contributes to the Global Forum Programme of Work.
The working group (WG) publications, alongside other outputs of the groups, are formally reviewed and approved by the Council of Advisors.
Criteria for WG membership:
The size of Working Groups may vary, but should not exceed 20 members. It is important for the membership to be as inclusive as possible.
The WG members remain in place for a minimum of two years and a maximum of six years.
The Council of Advisors decided to establish initially four working groups to be dedicated to the respective areas of work.
