CITS hosted a training workshop for academics from Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia on Nuclear Security Curriculum Development in Tbilisi, Georgia between August 3-4, 2015. The workshop was funded by the United States Department of State’s Partnership for Nuclear Security (PNS), with logistical support provided by CRDF Global.
The workshop was a follow-up to the curriculum development training workshop that took place in Vienna, Austria, on May 12-16, during which international experts equipped the participants with a basic understanding of nuclear security and curriculum development best practices. After the first workshop, participants were tasked to develop a syllabus for a nuclear security short or long course, which they presented during the August workshop, held in Tbilisi, Georgia on August 3-4. The workshop was conducted in English with simultaneous Russian interpretation.
The workshop was attended by over 23 academics from different educational affiliations, including universities and training centers, from Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia, who are hoping to introduce nuclear security curricula to their respective universities from September 2015.
