The PONI Conference Series, now in its fourteenth year, is unique in its emphasis on featuring rising experts and young professionals in the nuclear field. The Conference Series draws emerging thought leaders from across the nuclear enterprise and policy community, and provides them with a visible platform for sharing their new thinking on a range of nuclear issues.
Scenario-based discussion on nuclear terrorism event
Corey Hinderstein and Heather Looney from NNSA will lead the scenario, which will be adapted from the ministerial-level “Apex Gold” discussion developed by NNSA and used as part of the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit. This scenario-based policy discussion is designed to foster the sharing of perspectives and approaches for preventing and responding to nuclear security events. This event will use a fictional, transnational nuclear terrorism threat as the basis for discussion.
