IRSN is a “Technical Safety Organisation” (TSO), which operates scientific partnerships and provides scientific cooperation, nuclear safety, security and radiation protection services in 49 countries, in the frame of bilateral or multinational consortium agreements, under the auspices of the EU, of NEA or of the TSO networks (ETSON in Europe), or in cooperation with the IAEA.
The IRSN is also a founding member or a partner, through its contributing experts and its financial support, in several specialised organisations and networks.
The field of research has a long history of collaboration. The pooling of cultures, techniques, skills and resources has allowed the IRSN to enrich its own scientific approach to risk. Collaboration is a major element of the IRSN's activities, as it promotes both effective and innovative research
