Framatome has signed a cooperation agreement with Warsaw University of Technology to establish training and development programmes for future nuclear energy industry professionals.

The agreement establishes a joint framework for training nuclear energy professionals and implementing scientific projects.

Framatome will offer diploma internships that provide hands-on training and development for students in the nuclear power engineering specialty of mechanical engineering and aeronautics faculty at Warsaw University of Technology.

The partners will also organise specialised scientific lectures related to nuclear technology for a wider audience, including students from other universities, research institutions and the general public.

The agreement was signed on 30 July by Bernard Fontana, chief executive officer of Framatome, and Professor Jan Szmidt, rector of Warsaw University of Technology.

Framatome, 75%-owned by French state-controlled nuclear operator EDF, designs, manufactures and installs components, fuel, and instrumentation and control systems for nuclear power plants and offers a range of reactor services.
