IUR has developed close link with a number of scientific partners, through agreements with relevant networks and international organizations and through financial supports with our sustaining members.

New sustaining members are welcome at any time. Information can be obtained from the IUR secretary.


Committed to construct a worldwide network in Radioecology and related relevant disciplines, IUR has signed a number of agreements with sister international organisations sharing common interests. The cooperation between the following organizations and the IUR was formalised over the past years with the signature of the 6 following Memoranda of Understanding.

Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry is a not-for-profit, global professional organization comprised of some 6,000 individual members and institutions from academia, business and government. Since 1979, the Society has provided a forum where scientists, managers and other professionals exchange information and ideas on the study, analysis and solution of environmental problems, the management and regulation of natural resources, research and development, and environmental education.

  • NREA & IUR

In 1986 New & Renewable Energy Authority was established to act as the national focal point for expanding efforts to develop and introduce renewable energy technologies to Egypt on a commercial scale together with implementation of related energy conservation programs.

Members of the European Radioecology Alliance bring together parts of their respective research and development programmes into an integrated programme that maintains and enhances radioecological competences and experimental infrastructures, and addresses scientific and educational challenges in assessing the impact of radioactive substances on humans and the environment.

    The purpose of SPERA is to provide a forum to encourage and facilitate communication among scientists in the field of environmental radioactivity. Through SPERA scientists from different disciplines and organisations from the South Pacific region, and countries world wide, can discuss and debate the origins and behaviour of natural and anthropogenic radionuclides in the environment; their radiological consequences and the practices required to minimise these; and their application to the understanding of natural processes.

      • NCoRE & IUR

      NCore, US National Center for Radioecology, is a multi pollutant network that integrates several advanced measurement systems for particles, pollutant gases and meteorology. Most NCore stations have been operating since the formal start of the network on January 1, 2011

        The IAEA is the world's center of cooperation in the nuclear field. It was set up in 1957 as the world's "Atoms for Peace" organization within the United Nations family. The Agency works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies.

            The Journal of Environmental Radioactivity (Elsevier) provides a coherent international forum for publication of original research or review papers on any aspect of the occurrence of radioactivity in natural systems.


            As foreseen in the IUR Statutes, the IUR does not only have a Membership policy on an individual basis but also on an "Organisation basis: Institutes and Companies". They are called "Sustaining Members". Sustaining Members are for profit and non-profit organizations, Institutions, or Associations concerned with the affairs and purpose of the Society and who wish to foster the Society's purposes.  

            Thanks are expressed to the sustaining members having offered financial sponsorship to IUR during the last years. These are:

              DSA     Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority Norway
            IRSN     Institute for Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety        France
              DERPA     Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission - DERPA Canada
