CRDF Global Joins the International Nuclear Security Education Network

Dec 19, 2011

CRDF Global is pleased to announce its membership in the International Nuclear Security Education Network.

Established in March 2010, the International Nuclear Security Education Network (INSEN) is a partnership between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), educational and research institutions, and other stakeholders, committed to ensure the sustainable establishment of nuclear security education. The network's mission is to enhance global nuclear security by developing, sharing and promoting excellence in nuclear security education. INSEN membership is informal and open to educational and research institutions already involved or planning to be involved in nuclear security education.

CRDF Global is engaged in nuclear education through the creation and administration of the Nuclear Education Consortium (NEC) (www.nucleareducation.us), which develops international civilian nuclear education capacity to foster a culture of qualified, safe and secure uses of nuclear energy worldwide.  NEC also supports the Department of State’s Partnership for Nuclear Security program, which establishes cooperative partnerships related to the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, in support of common nuclear security, safety and nonproliferation objectives.  

CRDF Global has been an observer of INSEN since shortly after its origin in 2010.  CRDF Global representatives have attended INSEN’s annual meetings and participated in all three working groups.
