The annual meeting is typically held in person in Lyon, France, but in a nod to the global pandemic was held virtually for 2020. The event is organized by the non-profit economic accelerator Nuclear Valley, based in Burgundy, which is focusing on encouraging innovation and growth within the nuclear industry. In addition to more than 20 workshops, plenary conferences and presentations, the event represented a great opportunity for Veolia Nuclear Solutions to share the company’s compelling offering to a wide range of potential clients and partners.
Joining more than 500 fellow professionals from across the nuclear sector, the Veolia Nuclear Solutions team used the conference to showcase the depth and breadth of the company’s experience, capabilities, and professional acumen related to nuclear cleanup as part of the conférence. Veolia Nuclear Solutions’ presence was highlighted by standout presentations from Veolia Nuclear Solutions’ Vice President of Strategy and Marketing, Marc Rood, Director of Measurement and Characterization Solutions Vincent Giribaldi, and Head of Veolia Nuclear Solutions’ laboratory in France, Nabil Dehbi.
This year’s event also marked the first time that Veolia Nuclear Solutions’ United States-based team attended the industry get together, underscoring the depth and breadth of Veolia Nuclear Solutions’ experience, capabilities and geographic reach.
