This network aims to pool, analyse and share information on nuclear energy as well as practical experience to help improve knowledge and regional cooperation on nuclear safety in Asian countries. It has hubs in China, Korea and Japan, and five national centres in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The website provides information on nuclear power in Asian countries on topics that include waste management, emergency preparedness and education and training. It also publishes newsletters that report on relevant training workshops and meetings.
This group, part of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School, United States, conducts research into effective policies for developing and deploying clean, efficient energy technologies. It focuses on energy-technology innovation systems and policies, and how cleaner power can alleviate poverty, based on research in three countries — China, India and the United States — who are the world's biggest energy consumers. The website publishes discussion papers and research into nuclear power, and provides information about ongoing projects, fellowships and events related to energy policy.
The International Atomic Energy Agency, an independent UN organisation, works with member states to promote the safe, secure and peaceful development of nuclear technology. The website outlines the organisation's five key areas of work which include helping countries to use nuclear technology for sustainable development, building capacity in energy planning, and providing a framework to protect people's health against radiation. It also signposts relevant resources such as reports, conferences and research laboratories.
The website of the department of Nuclear Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States, provides information on current and past research in areas including nuclear reactions (fusion and fission) and security. It also hosts reports about nuclear energy's future, and publishes events, sources of information, news and undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The department aims to advance nuclear science and engineering to benefit society and the environment.
This group, based at the University of Greenwich in the UK, carries out research with a global scope that addresses economic, social and technical aspects of public services in a range of sectors including energy, water, waste management and healthcare. The website provides access to publications searchable by sector, country, subject and author, including reports on the economics and risks of nuclear power. Links to relevant institutions and companies are also made available, and the organisation tracks cuts in spending on public services worldwide.
This organisation helps commercial nuclear power plants ensure safety and reliability through independent peer reviews, technical support, access to information that allows operators to learn from others' experience, and sharing of professional development activities. The website outlines the organisation's main services and publishes relevant reports, including documents about nuclear power performance indicators. Some of the publications are also available in French, German, Japanese, Russian and Spanish.
The agency, established as an independent body of the US government, regulates the commercial use of radioactive materials in the country’s power plants, hospitals, universities and transport sector. The agency aims to ensure safety, secure management and achieve an open regulatory process. It also supports other countries' efforts to develop regulatory policies for nuclear programmes. The website offers information on a wide range of issues relating to nuclear power including factsheets, reports, guidance documents, newsletters and notices of relevant meetings.
This organisation promotes the peaceful use of nuclear power and supports the global nuclear energy industry through expert working groups, representation in policy forums, and information sharing. The website publishes news, public information on nuclear energy — including country-specific analysis and background information on nuclear fuel cycles — a communication network for members, an index of nuclear stocks, and relevant publications. It also provides access to a database of nuclear reactors and information on conferences.
The World Nuclear University aims to improve training and leadership for those involved in the peaceful use of nuclear technologies by offering courses in current issues facing the nuclear industry. It is supported by governments, academia and industry. The website publishes information about available courses, which vary in length from one day to six weeks, as well as other training programmes, information about sponsorship for applicants from developing countries, and relevant publications.
