The global nuclear lobby co-opts academia- now they’ve got University of Tasmania

IAEA and University of Tasmania Sign Practical Arrangements Agreement to Enhance Cooperation in Human Health, Agriculture, Environment and Marine Sciences On 12 December, the IAEA and the University of Tasmania (UTAS) signed a Practical Arrangement which provides a framework for closer collaboration in the areas of health, agriculture and the marine environment. The agreement – the first signed between the two organizations – covers the period of 2018 to 2021.

Under the new agreement, UTAS will support the IAEA’s technical cooperation efforts by providing both short- and long-term training programmes in the peaceful application of nuclear science, especially in the fields of human health and nutrition, nuclear medicine, agriculture, environment and marine sciences. Both parties will disseminate and exchange relevant educational material and evidence-based practices, and will work together to promote the application of nuclear technologies in human, social and scientific development.

The Practical Arrangement was signed by Rob Atkinson, Deputy Vice Chancellor Global of UTAS, on 11 December 2018 and countersigned on behalf of the IAEA by Dazhu Yang, Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Technical Cooperation, in the presence of Professor Andrew Hills and Professor Nuala Byrne of the UTAS College of Health and Medicine. …..https://www.iaea.org/newscenter/news/iaea-and-university-of-tasmania-sign-practical-arrangements-agreement-to-enhance-cooperation-in-human-health-agriculture-environment-and-marine-sciences
