Partnership Overview | Objectives

The mission of the World Nuclear University (WNU) is to strengthen the international community of people and institutions so as to guide and further develop:

- The safe and increasing use of nuclear power as the one proven technology able to produce clean energy on a large global scale; and

- The many valuable applications of nuclear science and technology that contribute to sustainable agriculture, medicine, nutrition, industrial development, management of fresh water resources and environmental protection.

Through a worldwide network that coordinates, supports and draws on the strengths of established institutions of nuclear learning, the WNU promotes academic rigour and high professional ethics in all phases of nuclear activity, from fuel and isotope supply to decommissioning and waste management.

While looking to the future, the WNU will strengthen capabilities to manage, and responsibly dispose of, the waste legacy of early weapons and power programmes in compliance with rigorous standards of custodianship and environmental protection.
