NEA and EPRI will cooperate on nuclear research

The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the US-based Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to exchange global nuclear research experience, underlining the scope and objectives of a five-year agreement to establish dialogue between both organisations. 


This MOU covers various areas of nuclear research: safety, radiation protection, scientific and technical developments, operational experience, economic analysis and radioactive waste management. Its purpose, according to a joint satement, is to deepen both parties' understanding of the global research needs in the area of nuclear energy, taking into consideration perspectives of utilities and the industry, as well as those of regulators and government organisations.  

Both organisations have commented on the opportunities that this mutual cooperation will facilitate, such as access to state-of-the-art information in nuclear technology for NEA, and a better understanding of the technical and strategic interests of the member countries in EPRI. This agreement will allow them to develop innovative ideas and deliver new technology for the benefit of EPRI's global membership and NEA member countries.

EPRI is an independent, non-profit organisation that researches the generation, delivery and use of electriicty. It represents over 90% of the electricity generated in the United States. NEA, based in Paris, is an intergovernmental agency that operates within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
