The Technical University of Kenya Predicts that Kenyan Institutions Will Gain from ISTC
The Technical University of Kenya (TUK) reported in its bulletin January-April 2020 about the ISTC Management visit to Kenya. It quotes Mr. Eddie Maier, Deputy Head of Unit, DEVCO, who stated during a conference in Nairobi that ISTC is seeking partnership with Kenya as a pioneer country in Africa. The ISTC GB Chairman Ambassador Ronald Lehman reminds to the readership that “when you venture into nuclear energy, there must be a security aspect to be considered from the beginning, and that will form part of our conversation”.
The TUK Bulletin predicts that in Kenya ISTC will be involved in capacity building, training of staff and sharing experiences. As a Ministry we have decided to become (ISTC) Member so that we can benefit more”, says Mr.Peter Okwanyo, Secretary Administrative, University Education and Research in the Ministry of Education.
Since 2017 ISTC was an important sponsor to the Kenyan Young Generation in Nuclear, and the African Youth Nuclear Summits. For Kenya the partnership with ISTC proved its usefulness and remains promising in matters related to safe application of nuclear science and technology.
