Last month, IMSISS student Ilenia Bruseghello represented the University of Glasgow, as well as the IMSISS programme, at the NEA Global Forum on Nuclear Education, Science, Technology and Policy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on September 20th and 21st September 2023. Ilenia shared her thoughts on this great opportunity below – well done Ilenia!

“I was truly honoured to represent the University of Glasgow and the IMSISS programme at the NEA Global Forum on Nuclear Education, Science, Technology, and Policy held at MIT. This experience provided a remarkable platform to showcase my research on mitigating non-proliferation risks associated with nuclear energy in space exploration. The forum’s expert panel discussions broadened my horizons, offering valuable insights and perspectives on nuclear policy and technology. Meeting and networking with inspiring women in this field reaffirmed my passion and commitment to contributing to the advancement of nuclear science, policy and technology. I am deeply grateful for the support and encouragement I received from my mentors and peers, this opportunity has not only expanded my knowledge but also reinforced my determination to make a positive impact in this critical domain.”
