HSH Prince Albert has attended the 60th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, where he was the guest of honour of the Scientific Forum, the main side event of the conference, and itself a high-level occasion where scientists and experts gather to discuss a priority topic for the agency. This year the forum’s theme was “Nuclear technology for sustainable development objectives”.

In his speech, Prince Albert II recalled his “commitment and that of the Principality in order to build a peaceful and better world through the use of nuclear applications in the service of sustainable development”. He referred in particular to environmental protection and the promotion of global health.

The Prince also mentioned the partnership between the agency and the Principality, which since 1961 has hosted the Environmental Laboratories of IAEA, located on Quai Antoine 1er. Following the Scientific Forum, HSH Prince Albert visited the laboratories in Seibersdorf, another IAEA research centre, which is the counterpart of the laboratories in Monaco.
