Nuke World. China charges ahead with new nuclear while Europe drags its feet.The last nuclear reactor in Germany is due to be powered down next year, England’s Dungeness B power station closed seven years earlier than planned over the summer, and French president Emmanuel Macron is refusing to commit to new nuclear capacity. The increased interest in small fission reactors could indicate that the era of gigawatt-scale nuclear power plants is drawing to a close. But this doesn’t mean that atomic energy will go quietly into the sunset. Tuesday 28 September

Manufacturing. Skills and Careers. How Gen Z can address manufacturing labour shortage. One thing that has become abundantly clear over the past 18 months is the ever-increasing importance of the manufacturing and Gen Z will play a big part in the sector’s future. With Baby Boomers reaching retirement age, manufacturers are looking to attract a new generation of workers. Gen Z is generally defined as those born sometime between the mid-1990s and 2010, and those at the older end of that bracket are just now beginning to enter the workforce. This generation is expected to represent more than 1 billion of the global workforce by 2030, so guiding Gen Z to the manufacturing industry will be critical in addressing the industry’s growing labour shortage.
