We were visited by representatives from the INMA mission - they were interested in our competences and CANUT

At the beginning of June, representatives of the INMA (International Nuclear Management Academy) mission visited us in Pilsen. It is the International Academy for Nuclear Management, which supports universities in creating and delivering master's degree programs focused on technology management for the nuclear sector.

The first part of the mission took place last year due to covid only at ŠKODA JS a.s., as part of this year's second part, we were able to welcome representatives of the international organization to the premises of our Research and Development Center in Pilsen. Together we talked about our competences in the field of supply of control and management systems in nuclear energy and the share of ZAT's supplies on world markets.

Of course, the discussion turned to our cooperation with the University of West Bohemia (ZČU), from which we employ a number of graduates. A separate part was our involvement in the research and development of the Center for Advanced Nuclear Technologies CANUT (Centre for Advanced Nuclear Technologies).

"ZAT's participation in research activities supports science and research, at the same time we transfer their results into practice within technical platforms and then apply them in our products and project solutions. We apply the latest technical trends in accordance with customer requirements," states Pavel Kulík, technical director of ZAT.

The visit was attended by Dr. John W. Roberts, director of the IAEA European Nuclear Education Network from Vienna, doc. prof. Szieberth Mate, researcher and head of department of the Institute of Nuclear Engineering from Budapest and prof. Cable Kurwitz, research engineer and senior lecturer at the Texas Institute of Nuclear Engineering.
