Turkish and Ukrainian academicians and students will carry out joint studies in the field of nuclear science as part of a cooperation between the institutions of two countries.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
The cooperation between Turkey’s Ankara University Institute of Nuclear Sciences and the State Scientific and Technical Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety of the State Nuclear Regulatory Committee of Ukraine (SSTC NRS) aims at information sharing and joint studies in the field as well as to train students in areas such as use of nuclear technologies and radiation safety.
Niyazi Meric, the institute director at Ankara University, told Anadolu Agency that Turkey needs trained personnel to work at nuclear reactors that will be set up in the country.
“Educating our students in the best way is of great importance for the future of our country. For that, there is a need for laboratories in which nuclear science studies can be conducted,” Meric said, highlighting there is a small number of academicians working in the field in Turkey.
In this respect, Meric said, his university went for a cooperation with the SSTC NRS to benefit from their experiences.
“There are many nuclear reactors in Ukraine. There is also Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant where a reactor accident occurred.”
“We aim to go to these places, and both carry out our experiments and train our students in the best way,” Meric said.
