The latest issue of the Security Index journal is partly devoted to the development of the global nuclear energy sector and nuclear infrastructure. Against the backdrop of the oil-and-gas needle and amid the continued devaluation of the Russian currency, the Russian nuclear energy sector seems to offer what may well be the only tangible, comprehensive, and carefully thought-out answer to economic upheavals. This particular branch of the Russian high-tech sector is not a prototype but a working engine.

“Exporters act on their initiative and help importing countries with a number of infrastructural issues, primarily in the educational sphere. Not only the supplier companies but also the exporting countries themselves work on education, development of the legal base and norms. Japan, Russia, France, South Korea and the USA are doing a great job, especially in the cases where they are involved in the construction. There is a number of good examples of assistance in education and training of national specialists, sometimes it seems to be done for purely humanitarian reasons,” – IAEA Deputy Director General, Alexander Bychkov.

This project is a PIR Center’s initiative to conduct a comprehensive study of the current state and the future of Russia's nuclear energy cooperation with other countries. The initiative also aims to analyze the Russian nuclear industry's export potential during the ongoing era of nuclear renaissance, as the looming shortage of fossil fuels is forcing many countries to think seriously about pursuing nuclear energy.
