A nuclear safety training institute will be set up in Abu Dhabi as part of the UAE’s plans for a peaceful nuclear energy program.
The Gulf Nuclear Energy Infrastructure Institute (GNEII) will “provide classroom instruction and hands-on experience in nuclear energy safety, security, safeguards and non-proliferation,” according to a statement released by the Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (Kustar), with which the nuclear institute will be associated.
GNEII will also be supported by the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation and the UAE Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation. The U.S. organizations involved in the project are Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and the Nuclear Security Science and Policy Institute at Texas A&M University (NSSPI).
