This summit seeks to amongst others:

  • Build networks among professionals, high schools, universities and other institutions about nuclear science and technology opening up future opportunities for the young professionals, as time progresses towards career inculcation in medicine, radiology, radiography, space exploration mining, construction, research and development.

 

  • Catalyse the process for knowledge development for foundational sciences, engineering, medicine, radiology, radiography and other radiation related applications with communications across these facets.

 

  •  Elevate young professional and set the pedestal for continuous career development and create partnerships with international groups for nuclear and science related disciplines

 

  • Expand nuclear networks among the young people in Sub- Saharan Africa starting from High schools, Universities, Institutions, Hospitals, Agencies and Parastatals so as to enhance an active participation in International Nuclear activities and congresses.

 

  • Engage all groups of participants on ways of promoting peaceful uses of nuclear technology and also learn the national, regional and international capacities in nuclear science and tech activities,

 

  • Proffer a new view for the nuclear energy roadmap with potential inclusion into the energy mix and other related matters.

 

  • Develop spirit of cross cutting interaction amongs all fields of endeavour that touches and extends on the following sustainable development goals 3, 13, 7, 2 illustrated below:

  • Frontiers in Nuclear is a means of achieving sustainable development goals and its enhancements across health, energy, climate change, industry, food security :
