GNSSCOM is the network for Member States to connect and collaborate with the goal of improving communication effectiveness and building public trust in the nuclear field.
Transparent and effective communication is vital for the development and sustainability of strong nuclear and radiation safety as well as security programmes for IAEA Member States and for their constituent interested parties. However, many Member States continue to face diverse and complex communication challenges: transparency, stakeholder identification, dissemination of information, message and information clarity, etc.
The IAEA focuses on promoting programmes to support Member-State communication capabilities through training programs and workshops to support and give guidance in delivering valuable results. Networking and other specific activities improve the exchange and sharing of information. Capacity building will therefore increase communication literacy and professional skills, knowledge and expertise.
To further support MS, IAEA intends to provide a network and a platform related to communication matters and/or issues for Member States and national regulatory authorities, their technical support organizations and relevant governmental organizations.
GNSSCOM focuses on building communications capacity for communication practitioners and relevant experts of national regulatory authorities and their technical support organizations worldwide. Its aim is to improve the dissemination of information, enhance transparency and communication effectiveness of safety and security related technical and technological information to the collective public, media, internal and external organizational, government and legislative audiences/stakeholders.
