A new assessment will examine ways in which U.S.-Russian cooperation on strategies for the ultimate disposition of weapons plutonium and highly enriched uranium can be reinvigorated and enhanced.
A new project will identify the potential for misuse of radioactive sources available widely throughout industry, medical facilities, and research organizations in the United States, Russia, and other countries.
These joint activities will continue the long-standing cooperation between the Russian Academy of Science and the National Academies in support of their governments’ efforts to respond to urgent international security problems.
The Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Academies call on the national academies of sciences of all countries possessing nuclear weapons or using radiological materials to cooperate with them in this most important sphere of national and international security.
