The Namibian Uranium Institute was established as part of the stewardship mission of the Namibian Uranium Association. The Institute is guided by respected independent scientists who serve on the Namibian Uranium Association’s Scientific Committee. The main purpose of the Namibian Uranium Institute is to act as a communication hub for the uranium industry in Namibia, and to promote knowledge and capacity building in specialised skills in the fields of environmental management, radiation safety and occupational health. The Namibian Uranium Institute therefore provides an opportunity for the Namibian Uranium Association’s members to work together to improve safety and health performance through the identification of world-class leading best practices and their implementation. As such, the Namibian Uranium Institute is working closely with the Namibian Government and state agencies, and also has close ties with the Namibian University of Science and Technology.
