DAEJEON, Apr. 25 (Korea Bizwire) — South Korean experts on nuclear technology are teaming up to strengthen Vietnam’s radiation control capabilities.
The Global Institute for Nuclear Initiative Strategy (GINIS) announced on Wednesday that it had established a new Nuclear Safety Technology Center at Vietnam’s Dalat University.
The center will serve as a platform to transfer South Korea’s experience and technology on radiation safety and control to Vietnam.
Research teams from the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute will also participate in the initiative to train specialists on monitoring environmental radiation.
The GINIS is a non-profit organization established in 2014 comprised of leading experts in nuclear technology, including Dr. Kim Si-hwan, who is responsible for developing South Korea’s own technology in the 1980s for nuclear fuel in the light water reactors.
Since January, the institute has been participating in a project led by the National Research Foundation of Korea to use the country’s science and technology capabilities to help promote the sustainable growth of developing countries and improve the lives of local citizens.
“We are planning to build a professional network of radiation safety experts between South Korea and Vietnam,” said Kim Hyo-jung, head of the GINIS.
“By sharing our knowledge and experience with Vietnam, we’re hoping to promote the quality and safety of South Korean nuclear technology.”
