February 11, 2019 -- Russian atomic energy firm Rosatom and the Russian Academy of Sciences are collaborating to advance nuclear medicine and nuclear energy in the country, according to an 11 February report in World Nuclear News.

The agreement was signed in Moscow last week for the partners to cooperate on joint scientific, technical, and other R&D activities that include the creation of modern diagnostic equipment, nuclear medicine, and radiation therapy. They also plan to develop laser technologies and particle accelerators and address the environmental aspects of radioactive waste management.
