Participation in the NLI takes place within the framework of relevant IAEA Technical Cooperation (TC) projects. Participants are thus selected in the context of such projects among candidates nominated by Member States through the appropriate governmental channels. Applications submitted directly by candidates will not be considered.
In order to allow the broadest representation of IAEA Member States, and due to the limited number of places available, only one candidate per Member State will be considered. National Liaison Officers are encouraged to contact the Programme Management Officers at the Department of Technical Cooperation early on to ensure that participation in this event contributes to relevant technical cooperation projects.
Candidates should be legal experts or regulators employed in governments and relevant national agencies involved in the drafting of nuclear-related national legislation.
Candidates should have an excellent knowledge of English, including, as far as possible, legal terminology. Neither translation nor interpretation into any other language will be provided for the training session.
The application form can be found here. Applications to the 2013 course should reach the IAEA no later than 5 May 2013.
Cost And Funding
Participation in the NLI is free of charge. The IAEA will cover the travel and accommodation expenses of participants as per IAEA rules and practices.
