International Nuclear Security Education Network (INSEN)
At an IAEA workshop held in March 2010, a group of experts from academia, international organizations and professional nuclear material management associations established, under the auspices of the IAEA Nuclear Security Programme, the International Nuclear Security Education Network (INSEN).
The network's mission is to enhance global nuclear security by developing, sharing and promoting excellence in nuclear security education.
The Members of INSEN collaborate in the following areas/activities:
- Development of peer-reviewed textbooks, computer based teaching tools and instructional material, including exercises and materials for laboratory work;
- Faculty assignment and development in the different areas of nuclear security through mutual faculty exchanges and/or joint development and implementation of in-depth nuclear security training programmes or schools;
- Joint research and development activities to share scientific knowledge and infrastructure;
- Student exchange programmes to foster international cooperation and exchange of information;
- Quality assurance: consistency with IAEA defined terminology set out in the IAEA Nuclear Security Glossary, the Fundamentals and the Recommendation documents;
- Theses evaluation, coordination and improvement;
- Performance of surveys on the effectiveness of nuclear security education among students and faculty.
At this stage the INSEN membership is informal and open to any educational and research institution already involved or that plans to be involved in nuclear security education in the future.
Authorized representatives of any educational or research institution, or an authorized representative of competent authorities, may request INSEN membership through the contact address below.
