Holidays Greetings From Win Europe President

E-mail Print

WiN Europe is now one year old!

This first year has been a great launching year for us. We welcomed two new members in February, Spain and Bulgaria. We participated in more than 15 events in 10 European countries. We were recognized as NGO by the AIEA, signed partnership with the ENS and ENELA and cooperate with ENEF or the OECD/NEA.

After a difficult year for the nuclear industry, WiN Europe is working to increase safety culture and professionalism of nuclear workers especially of women, to encourage young girls and boys join up the nuclear field.

We will continue to develop our activities in 2012. On behalf of WiN Europe Board, I wish you a very happy holiday season with family and friends, and all the best in 2012.
