TC project types

Technical cooperation projects can be national, regional or interregional.

National projects involve a single country and focus on supporting national development priorities where the use of nuclear techniques or technology is an essential element for the achievement of national objectives or provides a solution to a problem in a cost-effective, safe and secure manner.

Regional projects deliver technical cooperation support across national boundaries and address the needs of several Member States in a specific region. Such projects take into account national development objectives but are developed according to regional development priorities established by regional cooperative agreements, strategies and frameworks. Regional projects are categorised as transnational, regional, capacity building or joint activities.

•  Transnational projects deal with challenges involving more than one country, but not necessarily all countries in a particular region.

•  Regional standard setting projects provide a framework for the equitable participation of Member States on a regional scale. Projects may include the design of guidelines, curricula, teaching materials and the documentation of best practices.

•  Projects on capacity building for developing countries provide support to candidates from developing countries so that they can participate in conferences, seminars and workshops that have been approved under the IAEA Major Programmes. This promotes networking, knowledge sharing, South-South and triangular cooperation.

 Joint technical cooperation activities with a regional or international entity, formalised through a cooperation agreement, are also regarded as regional.

Interregional projects deliver support across national and regional boundaries, and address the needs of several Member States in different regions. Interregional projects are categorized as transregional, global, capacity building or as joint activities with an international entity.

•  Transregional projects deal with development challenges involving countries from more than one region, but not necessarily all regions.

•  Global standard setting projects provide a framework for the equitable participation of Member States on a global scale. Projects may include the design of guidelines, curricula, teaching materials and the documentation of best practices.

•  Projects on capacity building for developing countries provide support to candidates from developing countries so that they can participate in conferences, seminars and workshops that have been approved under the IAEA Major Programmes. This promotes networking, knowledge sharing, South-South and triangular cooperation.

•  Joint technical cooperation activities with an international entity, formalised through a cooperation agreement, are also regarded as interregional.
