IFE – the first IAEA collaborating centre in the field of nuclear decommissioning
The formal signing of IFE as an IAEA collaboration centre took place on 16th September in Vienna.
IFE’s new center will be working on digital innovation and transformation of decommissioning.
IFE has been conducting research and developing digital tools to assist decommissioning for decades for the international nuclear industry. Now, IAEA show the community that it has identified IFE to take the international lead when it comes to applying innovative digital solution to facilitate nuclear decommissioning.

IFE’s work will focus on research and dissemination of innovative digital technology to safe and efficient decommission of nuclear facilities, comments Tomas Nordlander. He also emphasize the impressive efforts by István Szőke as essential for the achievement.
