Nuclear energy is clean, reliable and competitive with many peaceful applications, among which the most important application is in power generation, where it is gradually replacing fossil fuels and aims to avoid massive pollution of environment and irreversible climate changes. This Special Issue aims to analyze state-of-the-art aspects of nuclear safety, emergency and security, and will comprise selected papers presented at International Conference on Nuclear Safety, Nuclear Emergency and Nuclear Security—Nuclear Energy Knowledge Management of the BRICS Countries held on Hengyang City, Hunan Province, China, 3–6 December 2017. This conference was held as a global conference for theory, technologies and communication methods related to nuclear safety, emergency and security, and involved experts conducting academic investigations on nuclear energy knowledge management. Papers presented at this conference are invited for submission in this dedicated Special Issue of Sustainability titled “Nuclear Safety, Emergency, Security: Theory and Technology”. Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination.
