    • All major reactor vendors.
    • Nuclear utilities providing 70% of world nuclear generation.
    • Major nuclear engineering, construction, and waste management companies; and research and development organisations.

    Complementary Information

    While not targeted at EU policy makers, the World Nuclear Association also oversees the Harmony Programme. Harmony is the global nuclear industry's vision for the future of electricity and coordinates WNA's outreach to international organisations.

    The World Nuclear Association also hosts conferences and events generally targeted at the nuclear industry but which are open to participation from policymakers. Of these, World Nuclear Spotlight is the most policy maker focused, and one has been held in Poland. There has been no Spotlight conference for several years nowUnited

    Other activities

    World Nuclear Association's remit is global, and therefore it is interested in a limited scope of EU initiatives, policies and legislative files - primarily those with potential impacts beyond the EU.

    FORATOM is the main European nuclear industry association that seeks to directly interact with the European Commission and EU policy makers on a wide range of matters.
