ITER Director-General Bernard Bigot participates in the closing session of the IAEA Scientific Forum, with Kirsty Gogan, CoFounder of Energy for Humanity (left), IAEA Director-General Rafael Maria Grossi (centre) and forum moderator Melinda Crane (right). Fabricia Piñeiro, from the International Youth Nuclear Congress, also participated in the session.
This year's theme was "Nuclear Power and the Clean Energy Transition," focused on how innovative forms of nuclear energy can help the world reach its climate goals. ITER Director-General Bernard Bigot participated in the Closing Session panel, discussing how fusion may contribute to the future clean energy mix, in a way that would be complementary to fission and renewable energy.
