Workshop: Radiation Application Technology
October 8-19, 2012
Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI), Daejeon, Republic of Korea
Workshop Overview
The purpose of the workshop, conducted in co-operation with RCA Regional Office (RCARO) and Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI), is to introduce participants information on radiation application technology based on the experiences of RCA Member States and Korea. Key issues include: status of radiation application technology, research reactor utilization and application technology, radioisotope and radiation application technology. The workshop will consist of lectures, discussions and field trips to the related facilities and equipment.
