The UNWE has become the 53rd member of the International Network for Nuclear Security Training and Support Centers - NSSC Network. It is one of the real results of implementing the Agreement of Cooperation between the UNWE and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) signed by the Rector Prof. D.Sc.(Econ.) Statty Stattev and the Director General of IAEA Mr. Yukiya Amano during his visit in Sofia in June 2014.

The NSSC Network is established in 2012 in Vienna. Its mission is to help building up the international nuclear security capacity through cooperation between the Centers providing training in this field. The main task of the Network is to achieve a high level of nuclear security training and to encourage the cooperation and exchange between the Centers.  

On behalf of the Rector of UNWE Prof. D.Sc.(Econ.) Statty Stattev the Coordinator on implementation of the Agreement between the UNWE and IAEA Prof. Dr Dimitar Dimitrov, Dean of the Economics of Infrastructure Faculty and Head of the National and Regional Security Department (on the right) is giving to James Conner, representative of IAEA, a letter declaring the readiness of UNWE for being a member of the NSSC Network.

As a member of the NSSC Network the UNWE will represent our country in national and international seminars, conferences and meetings related to the nuclear security training. The university will develop programmes for education in nuclear security, will analyze the training demands, will work out plans in the field of cooperation related to the protection and non-proliferation of nuclear and any other radioactive products and will be a host of various national and international events devoted to this issue.

Another important result of the implementation of Agreement between the UNWE and IAEA is the International Master`s Degree Programme in Nuclear Security which has started a few days ago. The objective of the Programme is to prepare highly qualified managerial staff for the nuclear security sector. In the Programme will participate eleven students from seven countries and part of them are scholarship students of IAEA. In the framework of the Agreement the UNWE was also the host of the International Seminar in Nuclear Security in October 2015. The three day Forum opened by the Rector of UNWE Prof. D.Sc.(Econ.)
