ASIAN NETWORK FOR EDUCATION IN NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY
The Asian Network for Education in Nuclear Technology (ANENT) is a regional partnership, supported by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), for cooperation in capacity building, human resource development and knowledge management in nuclear science and technology. ANENT strives to promote, manage and preserve nuclear knowledge to ensure the continued availability of qualified human resources in the region for the sustainability of nuclear technology and to prepare newcomer countries to commence nuclear power programmes. The use of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes in the Asian region will depend inter alia on its ability to meet the national socio economic needs and sustainable development goals.
This is especially important in view of the growing energy needs, and the need for improving the quality of life without enhancing the environmental burden. Critical to the development and wider use of nuclear technology in both power and non-power applications will be the availability of “soft infrastructure”, qualified human resource, information, knowledge, skills and experience.
