An IAEA survey on the current status of knowledge preservation in nuclear and supporting organisations
Knowledge Preservation (KP) is part of the larger process of knowledge management and a variety of methods and tools are used to capture, process, organise, store, retrieve, exchange and communicate nuclear knowledge. A benchmark survey was conducted to determine the current and anticipated status of nuclear KP in International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) member states. This article presents an analysis of the benchmark survey results.
