Support to Other Universities/Institutions/Colleges
BRNS is encouraging many institutions across the country to initiate research programmes on low-level radioactivity measurements. Other funding agencies such as the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), Department of Science and Technology (DST), University Grants Commission (UGC), Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES), etc., are also promoting research studies on radionuclides in the environment, and their applications as tracers, chronometer, etc. The new groups, which have recently initiated these studies, lack adequate infrastructure facilities (both measuring systems and calibration facilities) and expertise. In order to generate quality data, which can meet any stringent quality assurance programme, advanced equipment, calibration facility, and expertise are essential.
CARER is helping researchers from other institutions by extending its advanced facilities. During the last couple of years, users from other institutions have increased by manifold. Every effort is made to accommodate the request of researchers from different parts of the country.
