CTBT Young Professionals Network

Welcome to the CTBT Young Professionals Network


The CTBT Young Professionals Network (YPN) is a community of young scientists and technical professionals working on monitoring and verification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). The aim is to ensure that there will be a new generation of experts and leaders to take the work of the CTBTO forward. 

The YPN is social and scientific network where the next generation members of the CTBT National Data Centres and the Provisional Technical Secretariat can meet, discuss and establish relationships to strengthen collaborations within the CTBTO.

The network meets both virtually and at CTBTO related events and meetings where they get to know their peers from around the world. Network members develop joint projects, share knowledge and receive guidance from senior experts.
