(1) The ITER Project, the Broader Approach Activities

Japan together with China, the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM), India, Korea, Russia and the United States are now engaged in the ITER Project, a collaboration to build an experimental fusion reactor in France to prove production of 500 MW of fusion power for the first time in the world. On October 24, 2007, the ITER Agreement (Agreement on the Establishment of the ITER International Fusion Energy Organization for the Joint Implementation of the ITER Project) entered into force. QST has been responsible to implement this ITER project.

Japan and EURATOM are jointly implementing the Broader Approach (BA) Activities, which complement the ITER Project, for early realization of demonstration fusion reactors that will demonstrate electricity generation. On June 1, 2007, the Broader Approach Agreement (Agreement between the Government of Japan and the European Atomic Energy Community for the Joint Implementation of the Broader Approach Activities in the Field of Fusion Energy Research) entered into force. QST has been responsible to implement this BA Activities.

(4) WHO Collaborating Centre (WHO-CC)

WHO Collaborating Centres (WHO-CC) are research institutes designated by the WHO to support the WHO's programmes. Over 800 WHO-CCs in over 80 Member States are working on areas such as nursing, occupational health, communicable diseases, nutrition, mental health, chronic diseases and health technologies as well as radiation emergency medicine.

QST was re-designated as a WHO-CC on September 9, 2017 for the next 4 years to implement the agreed work plan in the following fields.

1) Radiation emergency medicine and REMPAN* activities
*REMPAN: Radiation Emergency Medical Preparedness and Assistance Network, organized by the WHO since 1987.
2) Response to and recovery after radiation emergencies
3) Biodosimetry and BioDoseNet (cytogenetics and internal contamination monitoring)
4) Radiation protection for natural exposures
5) Safe use of ionizing radiation in health care settings
