Current IAEA Research

Article III of the IAEA Statute authorizes the IAEA to encourage and assist research on, and development and practical application of, atomic energy for peaceful purposes throughout the world and to foster the exchange of scientific and technical information, as well as the exchange of scientists in the field of peaceful uses of atomic energy. The IAEA’s Coordinated Research Activities stimulate and coordinate the undertaking of research in selected nuclear fields by scientists in IAEA Member States.
The IAEA supports research under its programmes, subprogrammes and projects that are listed in its approved Programme and Budget. These Coordinated Research Activities are normally implemented through Coordinated Research Projects (CRPs) which bring together research institutes in both developing and developed Member States to collaborate on research topics of common interest. Research, technical and doctoral contracts and research agreements are awarded to institutes in Member States for their completion of research work under these CRPs. The IAEA may also respond to proposals from institutes for participation in the research activities under individual research contracts not related to a CRP. A small portion of available funds is used to finance individual projects, which deal with topics covered by the IAEA’s scientific programme.
