We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
On 15-17 May, experts from 22 countries and several international organisations gathered at JRC Karlsruhe for the 2018 Counter Nuclear Smuggling (CNS) Workshop.
The workshop is an integral part of EU and US efforts to keep nuclear materials off the black market and bring nuclear smugglers to justice by strengthening the ability of the international community to counter nuclear smuggling.
The smuggling of nuclear and other radioactive material raises the spectre of nuclear terrorism.
