Frequently Asked Questions

What is the IAEA CONNECT platform?

​ The IAEA CONNECT platform is an easy-to-use online environment that hosts a wide range of IAEA’s professional networks that brings together professionals and experts from IAEA and its Member States to facilitate the sharing of information and capacity building while offering a centralized resource hub in their topical areas. Terms of Use and disclaimer can be found also here.


What can I find on the CONNECT platform? 

 You can find technical networks' sites filled with information on their specific areas. Consider these networks' sites as your one-stop shop (but free, of course) for all information related to that technical network area. Each network is unique, therefore, they will not necessarily offer the same features and types of content, but generally you will be able to find related publications, fellow peers, access to e-learning materials, useful links, forums for discussions, multimedia libraries, and more.

CONNECT, through the networks, enables the following to users and to Member State institutions at no cost:

    • A single-entry point for area specific resources (members have access to additional resources);
    • Cost free access to training materials and courses, including e-learning modules;
    • Access to materials presented at IAEA workshops, training courses, group scientific visits and similar (for network members only);
    • Access to peers; (for network members only);
    • Access to shared experiences and lessons learned, including good practices (for network members only); and
    • Collaborative development of guidance documents, procedures and training materials (for network members only).


How do I access the networks' public sites?

 It is as simple as to click on the respective network icon available under the IAEA Network tab, on the CONNECT homepage. Once you are there, you can bookmark it for easier future returns. You can also use the links provided two questions down. Yes, we try to make things easy for you as much as we can.


How to access the members-only portion of the networks' sites? 

 You will need to become a member of that network. It is very easy! For details on how to request network access, please watch this.

  • Networks for Nuclear Innovation - NNI


Can I be a member of more than one network?

 Yes, you can. You might not need to, but you can. That is because on the CONNECT platform, once you are a member of one network you have access to content on the whole platform, including the other members-only areas. However, please note there are some limitations. As the platform is interactive, you will only be able to contribute in discussion forums and upload documents, for example, on the network area you are a member of. You can request access to other networks, once you are a member already, from this page. Or you can proceed just like you did when you requested your first membership. Can't remember how you did it? Watch this!
