The Brazilian Nuclear Energy Association – ABEN, organization with 35 years working in the nuclear sector, will promote the eighth International Nuclear Atlantic Conference – INAC 2017, with the theme “Nuclear Energy for National Projects”, which intends to discuss the nuclear energy issue, in particular in Brazil, with the objective to extend the country's development in this area. To achieve this goal, a state policy is needed, not just government policies.

INAC is the major event on nuclear energy in Latin America, bringing together more than 1000 registrations and 3000 participants, dozens of enterprises, research institutes and universities around the country.

Complementing the conference, the ExpoINAC 2017 will be held, a commercial and technical exhibition that traditionally occurs in parallel with the event, offering its participants the possibility of networking with main stakeholders, to connect to the speakers, engage new clients and strengthen existing partnerships. Exhibitors will also be able to demonstrate their products and services, launch products and pursue national and international partners to form new alliances. For this, an area of approximately 500 m2 has been reserved with modulated booths options of 4 m2, 6 m2 and 16 m2, allowing an excellent opportunity for the dissemination of projects and solutions in the energy area and applications (nuclear medicine; industry; agriculture; gemstone, food and cultural goods irradiation, among others) and for conducting business.

The ExpoINAC 2017 is open to public and private sector institutions; engineering, consulting, technological innovation and service provision; machine and equipment manufacturers; management software companies, research and development companies; generation, transmission and distribution of energy, fuels and lubricants, infrastructure, sanitation, utilities and optimization of energy efficiency; educational institutions, scientific, business and technological associations; organizations and standards bodies; among others.
