Taking place as part of World Expo 2020 in Dubai (UAE), Rosatom’s thematic weeklong event “Breakthrough Technologies for a Sustainable Future” came to a close on January 24. The event – unprecedented in terms of scale – saw Rosatom representatives taking part in 18 sessions dedicated to the role of advanced technologies in achieving a sustainable future and solving the most pressing challenges of our time.

The week’s sessions were attended by representatives of more than 100 companies from across the world, including leaders from the global energy industry and related fields; governments, departments, and regulators; non-governmental and expert organisations; academic and research institutions, and youth associations. Rosatom’s partners in the United Arab Emirates also participated; amongst them were the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC), the UAE Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), DP World, and many others.

Participants discussed important issues in the field of global sustainable development, including ways to achieve carbon neutrality and address climate challenges; the role of new nuclear technologies, including small modular reactors, in eliminating ‘energy’ inequality and solving economic and social problems; the importance of composite materials for restructuring traditional industries and forming new industries; the training and education of personnel; the possibility of using nuclear technologies to improve the quality and duration of human life; challenges in IT sector development and the role of IT solutions in bolstering various sectors of the global economy; approaches to communications and PR in the nuclear industry and the industry’s role in implementing humanitarian projects.

Watched by over 3,000 users worldwide, 360° interactive online tours of Russian nuclear power plants and MSZ Machinery Manufacturing Plant were also broadcasted on social media platforms in the framework of Rosatom’s thematic week.

The week’s events were held at Russia’s Expo 2020 pavilion, also the site of Rosatom’s exposition on the company’s key projects areas, from nuclear power stations to nuclear medicine to the development of the Northern Sea Route. For those unable to attend in person, the week’s sessions were also accessible on social media with 17 online broadcasts on Facebook and Youtube and a live feed of memorable quotes on Twitter reaching a total audience of 600,000 people.
