International Cooperation NEA with Joint Institute of Nuclear Research (1956-2010) Mongolia is a one of the founders of the Joint Institute of Nuclear Research and is an active member of bilateral cooperation. Bilateral cooperation is playing significant role in development not only new sciences like nuclear physics, nuclear electronics, computer science and applied mathematics but also Mongolia has received priceless gain in development of human resources.
Cont. Cooperation with IAEA (1973-2010) On September of 1973 Mongolia became 105th member of IAEA and has been receiving technical cooperation assistance since 1975 until now in following areas: produce agriculture medicine geology mining environment education scientific nuclear technology nuclear safety research & security
Cont. • According Country Program Framework for (2nd CPF) 2009-2014 sign between the Government of Mongolia and IAEA technical cooperation assistance shall be provided to following sectors: • uranium mining and regulation; • energy planning and economics; • agriculture and livestock health and production; • strengthening of national capability in nuclear science and technology; • human health and nutrition; • radiation protection and nuclear safety; • water recourse and management
Cont. Furthermore to this date the Nuclear Energy Agency has signed Memorandum of Understanding with following states on cooperation in the field of peaceful use of radioactive minerals and nuclear energy: Russia Japan India French China (2009.03.17 IN MOSCOW) (2009.07. IN TOKYO) (2009.09.14 IN NEW DELHI) (2009.10.05 IN ULAANBAATAR) (2010.06.01.
