he IAEA is now accepting applications for participation in coordinated research activities kicking off this year. Research institutions interested in gaining access to vast global databases of research findings, contributing to papers submitted to scientific journals and expanding their professional networks can browse through 47 new research areas and submit a proposal to participate.
“Coordinated research projects are a unique chance for scientists worldwide to join forces and do ground breaking research in some of the most important scientific studies underway in the peaceful applications of nuclear science,” said Aldo Malavasi, Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications. “We encourage research institutes, including those who have not previously participated in coordinated research projects, to apply.”
Over 1600 research institutions are already working collaboratively through more than 100 IAEA coordinated research activities on a broad range of topics. Some examples include: improving diagnostics and treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases, researching climate change and coastal pollution using isotopic tools, developing reactor safety designs, increasing agricultural efficiency and production, and enhancing security both at nuclear facilities and during radioactive material transportation.
