SNETP Innovation Award

The Forum honored emerging talents with the SNETP Innovation Award & I4N Italy Competition. Riccardo Chebac received the Jury Award, Aurora Pizzinat was honored with the Peer Award, Salvatore Cancemi was celebrated with the SNETP Innovation Award, and Paolo Di Biagio won the I4N Italy Competition. These awards recognize their outstanding contributions to nuclear research, inspiring the next generation of experts to innovate in the field.

In addition, SNETP joined the Italian Nuclear Association (AIN) and the Italian Nuclear Young Generation (INYG), in collaboration with the European Nuclear Society Young Generation Network (ENS-YGN) and supports the organization of the I4N (Innovation for Nuclear) – Italy competition.

Innovation for Nuclear (I4N) is a competition in which teams of students and young professionals from around the world present new and innovative ideas on how to use nuclear technologies. This year’s theme is “Nuclear Towards the Sustainable Development Goals”.
