IAEA Networks

AFRA Network for Education in Nuclear Science and Technology (AFRA-NEST)

The AFRA Network for Education in Nuclear Science and Technology (AFRA-NEST) was established in 2013 by the Africa Regional Cooperative Agreement for Research Development and Training related to Science and Technology (AFRA) to facilitate the implementation of its strategy on Human Resource Development and nuclear knowledge management.

African Food Safety Network (AFoSaN)

The African Food Safety Network (AFoSaN) brings together food safety and food control institutions in Africa. It includes food and veterinary laboratories, food inspectorates and other stakeholders, uniting to strengthen food safety control systems. Participants collaborate and share information on food matters and on analytical techniques. Analytical methods, such as Standard Operating Procedures, are shared through its web platform. Dedicated activities include mutual training, the administration of regional proficiency tests on pesticide residues, mycotoxins and veterinary drug residues, support to internationally-recognised laboratory accreditation and the organisation of conferences.

Asian Network for Education in Nuclear Technology (ANENT)

The Asian Network for Education in Nuclear Technology (ANENT) is a regional partnership supported by the IAEA for cooperation in capacity building, human resource development and knowledge management in nuclear science and technology. ANENT strives to promote, manage and preserve nuclear knowledge to ensure the continued availability of qualified human resources in the region for the sustainability of nuclear technology and to prepare newcomer countries to commence nuclear power programmes.

CONNECT

IAEA CONNECT is a platform available to all IAEA professional networks or communities of practice and its members. Its key objectives are to promote capacity-building, facilitate collaboration and share information and experience within and between the various networks and their members.

Control of Sources Network (CSN)

The Control of Sources Network allows regulators to interact, network and share challenges and lessons learned in regulatory activities. It is also provides regulators with relevant information and documentation related to regulatory control of radiation sources.

Food Safety Asia (FSA)

The Food Safety Asia (FSA) network brings together food safety institutions in the Asia, Pacific and Middle East regions. It shares information, knowledge and expertise in laboratory work, provides training and supports accreditation and the improvement of analytical capabilities in the analysis of pesticide and veterinary drug residues, also through its web platform. It contributes methods of analysis in the form of SOPs, and shares experience with instrumentation, its maintenance, troubleshooting and effective use.

Forum on the Safety of Near Surface Disposal

The IAEA launched the Forum on the Safety of Near Surface Disposal in 2017 to improve the safety of near surface disposal facilities by developing guidance, methods and tools, exchanging information on good practices, conducting informal peer reviews of facility safety cases, and facilitating education and staff training.

Global Network of Isotopes in Precipitation (GNIP)

The Global Network of Isotopes in Precipitation (GNIP) is a worldwide isotope monitoring network of hydrogen and oxygen isotopes in precipitation, initiated in 1960 by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and operates in cooperation with numerous partner institutions in Member States.

Global Network of Isotopes in Rivers (GNIR)

The Global Network of Isotopes in Rivers (GNIR) was initiated in 2002 to complement the Global Network of Isotopes in Precipitation (GNIP). GNIR is a global environmental observation programme dedicated to the compilation of isotopic assays of river waters, but also to the ongoing collection and analysis of water samples.

International Network for Nuclear Security Training and Support Centres (NSSCs)

The IAEA works with States to establish national Nuclear Security Support Centres (NSSCs) to strengthen the sustainability of nuclear security. The International Network for Nuclear Security Training and Support Centres (NSSC Network) facilitates cooperation among NSSCs.

International Nuclear Security Education Network (INSEN)

The International Nuclear Security Education Network (INSEN) is a partnership through which the IAEA, educational and research institutions, as well as other stakeholders cooperate to promote sustainable nuclear security education.

Latin American Network for Education in Nuclear Technology (LANENT)

The Latin American Network for Education in Nuclear Technology has been established to promote, manage and preserve nuclear knowledge and to ensure the continued availability of talented and qualified human resources in the nuclear field in the Latin American and Caribbean region.

Red de Latino America y el Caribe (RALACA)

The Red de Latino America y el Caribe (RALACA) network brings together analytical laboratories in Latin America and the Caribbean to enhance regional capabilities to target food safety and environmental sustainability. Its objective is to strengthen the technical capabilities of the laboratories in the region, to promote scientific cooperation among member countries and to foster communication between relevant stakeholders, including decision makers. It is organized by a managing board, administration secretaries, technical committees and independent advisory scientists.

Regional Network for Education and Training in Nuclear Technology (STAR-NET)

The regional network STAR-NET has been established to promote, manage and preserve nuclear knowledge and to ensure the continued availability of talented and qualified human resources in the nuclear field. The STAR-NET network seals collaboration between educational institutions and nuclear industry-oriented training centres in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russian Federation, and Ukraine.

Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (VETLAB) Network

VETLAB is an association of national veterinary laboratories in African and Asian countries; its expansion into Central and Eastern Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America is planned. The VETLAB network assists Member States to improve national laboratory capacities to early detect and control transboundary animal and zoonotic diseases threatening livestock and public health, including among others peste des petits ruminants, African swine fever, highly pathogenic avian influenza, Ebola, Rift Valley fever and lumpy skin disease.
