Ahmadu Bello University’s Centre for Energy Research and Training, CERT, and International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, have signed an agreement on participation in the Internet Reactor Laboratory, IRL project on the use of research reactor for nuclear courses at the university level.

IAEA’s Internet Reactor Laboratory Project is a cost-effective way to educate groups of students in reactor physics, and will assist Nigeria in development of the human capital needed for nuclear science and technology programmes.

The agreement was signed on September 26 at the ongoing 66th Annual Regular Session of the IAEA General Conference in Vienna, Austria.

The Vice-Chancellor, Ahmadu Bello University, Prof. Kabiru Bala, signed the agreement on behalf of the Centre and Nigeria, while Deputy Director-General, Nuclear Energy, IAEA, Mr. Mikhail Chudakov stood in for IAEA.

The project was facilitated by the Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission, NAEC, and it presents a unique opportunity for the research and teaching staff as well as cooperating universities to participate in human capacity building in the field of nuclear reactor physics and engineering.

IAEA’s IRL enables live immersion into reactor technology and operation to countries that otherwise have no installed facilities, but have groups of students ready to undertake experimental reactor physics courses.

It works by giving access to reactor experiments in a remote location via an internet link. Using hardware and software installed in a research reactor in the host state, signals are sent over the internet to the guest institution, where a real-time display of the reactor’s control room is visible to students
