Nuclear knowledge management
Nuclear knowledge has been developed and accumulated over decades of research on and development of nuclear technologies for power and non-power applications. This article is an attempt to summarise the development of nuclear knowledge in the past, its present status and unique characteristics and define a concept of nuclear knowledge management. It then outlines how nuclear knowledge management programmes can contribute to meeting a number of higher-level objectives in the future development and application of nuclear technologies.
