Working with international experts and the local scientific community to inspire young scientists and engineers and increase public awareness about the importance and benefits of nuclear energy. In 2008 Dr. Xoubi led the efforts with Yarmouk University to organize the First International Symposium on the Technology of Peaceful Nuclear Energy in Jordan.
In this historical moment Dr. Xoubi is signing the contract of Jordan’s first research & training reactor. This is a life-long dream, years of hard work and persistence have finally paid off and the reactor is now a reality.
Project Manager Ned Xoubi is briefing His Majesty King Abdullah II on Jordan’s first nuclear reactor at the ground-breaking ceremony of Jordan Center for Nuclear Research (JCNR) on November 23, 2010, signaling the start-up of the work on Jordan’s nuclear reactor.
Speaking at the international atomic energy agency (IAEA) about nuclear fuel, research reactors, nuclear education , uranium and waste management is an important part of promoting Jordan’s nuclear program to the international nuclear community.
Speaking at national Universities, professional organizations, conferences, and meetings to promote nuclear energy, and disseminate information, is an important part of developing Jordan’s nuclear program.
Bringing years of experience and education to design and build Jordan subcritical reactor (JSA), this facility will be used mainly for the education and training of nuclear engineers and scientists. This is Jordan’s first nuclear facility … from idea to realization … see how it is being built.
