The 2nd International Symposium on Highly Enriched Uranium Minimization, co-hosted by the Governments of Austria and Norway and NTI, in cooperation with the IAEA, took place in Vienna January 23-25, 2012.

It is the responsibility of all stakeholders to seize the moment, broaden the consensus and make commitments irreversible.
