This is a big one, and we are incredibly excited to cooperate with Rosatom on promoting their new contest focused on academic students and researchers.  Have you ever wondered what it is like work in a Russian nuclear power plant? Or perhaps to participate in a research project in a Russian nuclear research facility? Or maybe having the opportunity to sit down with Russian nuclear experts to discuss nuclear engineering and science?  Exciting possibilities, no? Rosatom is hosting a contest for nuclear engineering and science students where the winners will receive an all expense paid trip to Russia!!  While in Russia you will experience all of this and more!  So if any of this intrigues or excites you, then you will want to attend the 01 August Webinar with Ms. Lion to learn how to enter the contest!
