22 December 2020

Urenco has donated €40,000 to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme to help increase the participation of women in nuclear science by providing scholarships in nuclear related subjects.

The programme, run by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), is aligned to Urenco’s sustainability commitments to nurture the next generation of scientists and engineers and promote gender equality.

Boris Schucht, Urenco CEO, said: “We are delighted to increase our support of IAEA activities by making this donation to a very valuable programme.

“Urenco carries out a range of educational initiatives through our Richie education programme, designed to engage and inspire young people to study science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects with a view to creating the energy leaders of the future.

“Diversity and inclusion is also a high priority for us. We want to help create a workforce in the nuclear industry that reflects the society in which we operate. We believe that promoting and supporting inclusiveness, and making the most of diversity is good business, creates a safer workplace, enhances decision making, improves performance and, most importantly, is the right thing to do.”
