This year’s Forum, which will take place on 18 and 19 September, will focus on the theme of Global Challenges and the Development of Atomic Energy: The Next 25 Years, as this year coincides with the 50 th anniversary of the IAEA.

The Forum will be held in the Austria Center, in the margins of the formal proceedings of the General Conference.
