Visite de Máire Geoghegan-Quinn de l'Institut des transuraniens (ITU)
On 17 April 2012, Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, Member of the EC in charge of Research, Innovation and Science, visited the Joint Research Centre's (JRC) Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU), located in Karlsruhe, Germany. On this occasion, she met its about 300 staff as well as Thomas Fanghänel, Director of the Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU) of the Joint Research Centre (JRC), and Magnus Hedberg. This visit was the opportunity to get a first-hand insight of the nuclear safeguards activities carried out by the JRC, which have been significantly improved by the opening of a new analytical laboratory for nuclear micro-particles. With this state-of-the-art facility, JRC scientists at ITU can detect within a few hours the existence of nuclear particles in samples taken during safeguards inspections and determine their enrichment level. This allows international safeguards authorities to verify the absence of undeclared nuclear activities. The mission of the ITU is to provide the scientific foundation for the protection of the European citizen against risks associated with the handling and storage of highly radioactive material. The ITU’s prime objectives are to serve as a reference centre for basic actinide research, to contribute to an effective safety and safeguards system for the nuclear fuel cycle, and to study technological and medical applications of radionuclides/actinides.Máire Geoghegan-Quinn visited, among others, two important laboratories: the brand new Non-Proliferation activities SIMS LAB and the forensic laboratory where nuclear verification, disarmament and the prevention of illicit trafficking are fundamental issues for international security. For these reasons, the ITU developed the Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) method. SIMS allows analysis of uranium and plutonium in particles sampled in a broad range of nuclear safeguards contexts. As a spin-off from its radiochemistry activities, ITU has developed safe, reliable separation techniques for isolating specific radionuclides for targeting cancer cells, a technique the Commissioner declared to be of major importance to EU citizens.Máire Geoghegan-Quinn ended her visit giving a speech to the complete staff of the ITU.
