EURATOM and IAEA sign MoU on nuclear safety cooperation

The European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM) has signed today a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on nuclear safety cooperation, updating the previous agreement from 2013. Building on the extensive scientific and technological co-operation developed over the past years, the two parties have agreed to update the content of the MoU, extending activities to include emerging areas of common interest, such as education and training, small modular reactors and the safety of fusion installations. The MoU also looks to further strengthen cooperation in the areas of radiation safety, waste safety and emergency preparedness and response.
