Online is the way to go this season as the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (DOST-PNRI) celebrates the 48th Atomic Energy Week (AEW) from December 7-11, 2020. Throughout the week, the Institute will use the online platform to showcase the latest developments in the local nuclear S&T community.

Comprising virtual events, contests, exhibits, and a research conference, this year’s online celebration will be simulcast across various social media platforms to reach more attendees while ensuring everyone’s safety.

With the theme “Siyensiya at Teknolohiyang Pangnukleyar: Sandigan ng Kalusugan, Kaayusan, Kabuhayan at Kinabukasan,” the Institute highlights the atom’s role in addressing pressing problems in the society and in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The theme also highlights nuclear energy’s potential in contributing to economic recovery and adapting to the “new normal” particularly through the government’s recent interest in nuclear power as the government studies its inclusion in the energy mix.

Part of the week’s celebration is the 2nd Philippine Nuclear Research and Development Conference which runs December 8 to 10, with its plenary sessions to be made available to the public via the PNRI FB page. Filipino scientists, professionals and policy makers will present on the latest nuclear and radiation-related innovations as well as the growing role of nuclear science in the country’s larger development policy.

For individuals interested in the usual open-house exhibits, no need to fret as researchers will also host virtual exhibits and demonstrations of DOST-PNRI’s latest technologies. Completing the participants’ simulated visit experience is the PNRI virtual map which will be launched during the event.

Guests will also be treated to a number of contests they can join to win exciting prizes.

The annual AEW celebration, as mandated under Presidential proclamation No. 1211 in 1973, aims to generate awareness of the Filipino people on the beneficial uses of nuclear science and technology.
