The European Nuclear Young Generation Forum (ENYGF) is seen as the main opportunity for young people to be heard globally. It provides an international platform for knowledge transfer, discussion, and sharing best practices.

The ENYGF is a biennial event and alternates with the IYNC. The ENS YGN calls for ENYGF bids within their member countries. The event is organized by an executive committee from the selected country. This executive committee can acquire assistance from delegates of other countries who chose to collaborate. All committee members have a common goal which is to extend the ENS-YGN mission and help to create a global community of nuclear professionals.

The aim of the event is to provide a platform for learning and networking for young professionals in all areas of the nuclear field. It provides a chance to enhance international communication as well as sharing technical advances and knowledge, learning from experience and discussing best practice as well as considering social and political aspects of the nuclear industry.

The forum involves:

  • Formal lectures and presentations
  • Workshops
  • Technical tours
  • Keynote speakers
  • Social and cultural events
  • Mentoring programmes
  • Awards of the Innovations for Nuclear (I4N) prize

Each forum has a number of central focuses, around which the programme is based:

  • 2021 – Look ahead
  • 2019 – Nuclear for health – from half-lives to better lives
  • 2017 – Nuclear Innovation: a Rich Heritage and Our Bright Future
  • 2015 – Nuclear efficiency and nuclear and the environment
  • 2009 – Impossible is nothing
  • 2007 – The Nuclear Future
