During Vattenfall International Trainee Program each trainee does at least 16 weeks of assignments. This time I did a short but very interesting assignment at IAEA in Vienna. IAEA stands for the International atomic energy agency and seeks to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies. This includes much more than nuclear power! IAEA works with for example radiation protection within medical treatment and mining operation, many different industrial applications, marine environment and food and water safety. The staffs at IAEA have a great knowledge and it was very interesting to talk to them about their work and experiences. I also got the opportunity to attend a conference about Fukushima which was very rewarding to listen to.

In the end of the week my boyfriend came to Vienna and we finished the week with a nice road trip through Austria.
