PROJECT 030: Network of Excellence for Nuclear Forensics in South East Asia Region

Context:

In 2015 ASEAN countries will become the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). Therefore the amount of goods imported and exported from ASEAN countries will increase, along with the increased risk of illicit trafficking of nuclear and radiological materials. The need for a robust nuclear forensics laboratory to assist in the attribution of nuclear materials has become increasingly important in the ASEAN area.

Objectives:

Reinforce regional public security by upgrading nuclear forensics capabilities, technologies and methodologies to assess radioactive and nuclear materials by upgrading a regional laboratory in Thailand.
