Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nucléaire IRSN

The order creating IRSN put forward various missions for the Institute covering radiation protection, nuclear safety, and nuclear security.

Training through research at IRSN

Since 2004, the Institute has placed special emphasis on this mission by allocating an annual budget of €2,600,000 to its needs. The result has seen an increasing number of young research scientists joining IRSN laboratories each year, while targeting one hundred doctoral students and thirty placement positions for post-doctoral research. In parallel, IRSN is encouraging its senior researchers to apply for research director certification.
