What is NRDC?

The International Network of Nuclear Reaction Data Centres (NRDC) constitutes a worldwide cooperation of nuclear data centres under the auspices of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The Network was established to coordinate the world-wide collection, compilation and dissemination of nuclear reaction data.

Objectives and Tasks

The primary goal of the Network is the dissemination of nuclear reaction data and associated documentation to users. The following specific tasks must be carried out in order to accomplish this important aim:

Core Nuclear Data Centres provide coordinated, world-wide customer services covering the entire range of nuclear data described herein. These core centres also provide comprehensive compilations of experimental neutron reaction data and related bibliographic information.
Regional, national and specialized data centres provide essential complementary functions to the core data centres by assuming particular responsibility for the collection and dissemination of data of a specialized type or application.
Some discontinued data centres contributed to data exchange in the past. Their responsibility are now taken by other centres.
