December 15, 2020, 3:00PMANS News

The American Nuclear Society and Sociedad Nuclear Española (SNE) on December 10 signed a memorandum of cooperation (MOC) that creates a partnership between the two societies to cooperate in promoting the development of nuclear science and technology for peaceful purposes.

Details: Through the MOC, the parties agreed on several areas that will foster cooperation:

■ Informing each other of the convocation of appropriate technical and scientific conferences of international significance to be held in each country, and to charge no registration fees for two officers of the other party attending general conferences operated by the parties to this agreement. (For ANS, these conferences are its two national meetings.)

■ Encouraging the interchange of technical information, journals, and periodicals that are jointly identified and agreed upon by the executive officers or official points of contact of each society.

■ Promoting as much as possible the establishment of contacts between equivalent groups of each party to this agreement.

■ Preparing for publication in each other’s journals or other periodicals articles required by the other party, with submitted articles to be subject to usual editorial and financial procedures.

■ Strengthening contacts and exchanging experiences through communication or meetings of delegates from both parties.

■ Arranging for and sponsoring joint meetings or workshops on topics of mutual interest.

Background: Founded in 1974, the SNE consists of about 1,000 members and 50 collective members (groups, companies, and organizations related to nuclear activities, such as Framatome, Orano, and Westinghouse). Its mission is to promote knowledge and dissemination of nuclear science and technology through the competence and experience of its partners.
