International Forum "Chornobyl's Legacy for the Nuclear Safety of the World"
April 21-23, 2016, NTUU "KPI"

On April 26, 2016 it will be the 30th anniversary since the world community has know the name of Chornobyl, which became the synonym for a terrible technological disaster and tremendous ecological catastrophe on the global scale.

It was difficult 30 years of heroic exploit of a large number of people. The consequences of one of the largest technological disasters could realize the whole world that is why its 30th anniversary cannot be ignored.

Nowadays the Chornobyl Nuclear Power Plant does not work; the storehouse for nuclear waste is under construction. There is an active work on the building of a new safe confinement which will reliably isolate the destroyed power generating unit from surrounding environment. There is no doubt that in 2017 a new safe confinement will be constructed.

All these projects became feasible due to significant financial and technical support of the world community.

The next and the final stage of overcoming the consequences of Chornobyl disaster should be the development of infrastructure for processing of unstable structures and their dismantling, removal of fuel-containing materials from the "Shelter" Object and their safe burial. Considering that operational functionality of the "Shelter" Object is coming to the end in 2023 and taking into account its current condition, the work should be started without delay.

Unfortunately, today Ukraine is unable to solve these problems self-reliantly.

In 2016, it is planned to organize the International Forum "Chornobyl's Legacy for the Nuclear Safety of the World" in Ukraine involving wide circles of scientists, politicians and public representatives.

As the Forum coincides with on the date of the 30th anniversary of Chornobyl disaster, its including to the program of the issues of strengthening the nuclear safety in Ukraine and in the world and overcoming the consequences of the disaster will create the conditions for more active involvement of the world community in the process of solving the problems which are still not solved.

The Forum will provide an impetus for starting the discussion of a new phase of international cooperation, aimed at joint realization of activities on turning the "Shelter" Object into ecologically safe system.

Honeywell’s annual UniSim® Design Challenge for university and college students is on! It’s a great opportunity for students to gain experience using process simulation software and compete in a fun challenge with exciting prizes. 

How does it work?

  1. Honeywell provides free of charge, its powerful simulation software, UniSim Design Suite.
  2. Student or student groups create an innovative process design using the software to solve a process plant issue or create a new design.
  3. A professor (academic supervisor) from student's department supervises and provides guidance.

Prizes

  • All expenses paid trip to the Honeywell Users Group Conference in Madrid for 1-2 winning student(s) and their academic supervisor.
  • Students get to network with leaders from the process industries.

Who can enter?
