EU/US Joint Steering Committee on nuclear safety research
The JRC hosted the second Joint Steering Committee held in Brussels between the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom). This meeting took place under a 2010 Agreement in the field of nuclear material safeguards and security research and development.
The Agreement provides a framework for greater technical cooperation in areas such as nuclear safeguards, border monitoring, nuclear forensics, export controls, and physical protection of nuclear materials facilities. This meeting served as an opportunity to reinforce important commitments to expand technical cooperation in these areas, and ultimately advance mutual nuclear security and non-proliferation objectives.
