World Council of Nuclear Workers (WONUC)   

The World Council of Nuclear Workers "WONUC” is a nongovernmental organization (NGO) non-profit, whose articles are registered in Paris. WONUC is an association of trade unions and / or other organized bodies of workers and professionals in the science related to the nuclear industry.

OBJECTIVES:

-  The rights of nuclear and science-related industry workers and professionals.

-  Defense of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and promoting non-proliferation of nuclear technologies.

-  Creation and development of relations between organizations representing the interests of workers and nuclear industry professionals and science-related.

-  Organization and participation in all projects, events and debates that contribute to:

-  Construction of the image of nuclear energy and public acceptance.

-  Improved knowledge about the public acceptance of nuclear energy and its peaceful applications.

-  Improvement of scientific and technical knowledge on the peaceful applications of nuclear energy.

-  Consideration of peaceful uses of nuclear energy in the problem of economic, ecological and social development.

 

 

Low Radiation International Network (LOWRAD)

 LOWRAD

The health consequences of accidental, occupational, and medical exposure to ionizing radiation is a matter of concern to clinicians, nuclear workers as well as each individual. While there is a considerable increase of applications involving ionizing radiation and societal debates about the risks linked to radiation exposure, molecular, cellular, and clinical features of radiation response are still not fully understand. This is particularly the case of radiation low–dose exposure. The LOWRAD network assembles researchers, scientists, medical doctors interested in low dose region of ionizing radiation and it effects.

 

 

Polish Radiation Research Society (PTBR)

The Polish Radiation Research Society (PRRS) is a professional organization of scientists who are interested in the studies of irradiated matter and in practical applications of ionizing and nonionizing radiation. The mission of the Society is to promote, support, and popularize the development of radiation research. The Society provides opportunities for an exchange of ideas among its members, and fosters links between the scientific community and the general public. It also plays a unique educational role by organizing open seminars and ‘schools’ devoted to various aspects of ionizing and nonionizing radiation. The Society promotes international collaboration in radiation research and supports participation of its members in important scientific events. The PRRS is a member of the International Association for Radiation Research (IARR).

 

 

Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology (ICHTJ)

ICHTJ employs 250 staff, including 14 professors, 7 associate professors and 45 doctors. The Institute conducts R & D in the field of radiation chemistry and technology, radiochemistry, chemical nuclear engineering, nuclear analytical techniques, radiobiology and radiation protection, radiometric instrument design and use of nuclear techniques. About 50 employees, research and doctoral students is less than 35 years. Institute obtained for the years 2010 - 2014 nomination to the Collaborating Centre of International Atomic Energy Agency and it was prorogated for the next years. ICHTJ publishes scientific journal Nukleonika and popular science journal Progress in Nuclear Technology.
