LBNL

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with “excellence.” Eleven scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world...read more

KAERI_logo

Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute

KAERI was established in 1959 to lay the foundation for achieving national nuclear energy self-reliance.

Over the past 50 years, KAERI has become the driving force behind Korea´s national economic growth. KAERI has laid the stepping stones to promote strong economic development by using nuclear energy as a major energy source and to strengthen Korea´s industrial competitiveness through the transfer of advanced science and technology.

The world is faced with a serious crisis due to climate change and an energy scarcity. This crisis has escalated due to the indiscriminate use of energy. As a result, the global environment is being destroyed at a very rapid rate. Nuclear energy is an attractive alternative to avoid such an energy crisis...read more

Kurchatov Institute

The Kurchatov Institute is Russia's leading research and development institution in the field of nuclear energy. In the Soviet it was known as I. V. Kurchatov Institute of Atomic Energy,  abbreviated KIAE. It is named after Igor Kurchatov.

Until 1955 known under a secret name "Laboratory No. 2 of the USSR Academy of Sciences", the Kurchatov Institute was founded in 1943 with the initial purpose to develop nuclear weapons. The majority of Soviet nuclear reactors were designed in the Institute. Since 1955 it was also the host for major scientific experimental work in fields of thermonuclear fusion and plasma physics. In particular, first tokamak systems were developed there, the most successful of them being T-3 and its larger version T-4. T-4 was tested in 1968 in Novosibirsk, conducting the first quasistationary thermonuclear fusion reaction ever. Until 1991, the Ministry of Atomic Energy oversaw the Kurchatov Institute's administration. After the transformation into the State Scientific Center in November 1991, the Institute became subordinated directly to the Russian Government. According to the Institute's Charter, the Institute's president is appointed by the prime minister based on recommendations from Rosatom. In February 2005 Mikhail Kovalchuk was appointed director of the institute...read more
