Nuclear science and technology play an important role in addressing issues in low-carbon energy demand, human health, food security and environmental pollution, and contribute to socioeconomic development around the world.

The IAEA works to foster greater interest in these technologies among youth, including in Asia and the Pacific. Student and teacher winners from a Virtual NST Education Competition visited the IAEA in Austria in May 2022 to present their projects and learn hands on about the many uses of nuclear technology.

Радиоактивный материал может оказаться на месте преступления в результате умышленных злонамеренных действий, таких как хищение или незаконный оборот материала. Другой причиной может быть случайное повреждение преступниками оборудования, содержащего радиоактивные источники. В любом случае место преступления, на котором может находиться радиоактивный материал, требует особого внимания. В сотрудничестве с Управлением по ядерному регулированию Армении МАГАТЭ создало инсценированное место преступления с радиоактивным материалом и загрязненными вещественными доказательствами для имитации проведения расследования и сбора улик с соблюдением техники безопасности.

Практика, практика, практика: особенно осторожная работа на месте преступления с радиоактивным материалом и загрязненными уликами

Radioactive material can end up on crime scenes as a result of intentional malicious acts such as theft or trafficking of material. It can also be the result of criminals causing unintentional damage to machinery that contains radioactive sources. Regardless of the cause, a crime scene at which radioactive material may be present, requires special care. In cooperation with the Armenian Nuclear Regulatory Authority, the IAEA created a mock crime scene with radioactive material and contaminated evidence to simulate investigation and evidence collection in a safe and secure manner.
