International cooperation can contribute efficiently to the advancement of nuclear power safety. The Nordic example shows how properly planned safety research can yield results that are essential for continued safe operation. The projects under way can improve systems for early warning of unexpected incidents. Other projects will make it possible to optimize methods and routines designed to ensure safety of plants on a continuing basis. Resources are pooled throughout the effort so that more in-depth research becomes possible, including discussions with a range of specialists perhaps not available in any one country. International cooperation is thus of fundamental importance in maintaining constant alertness against unanticipated accidents in nuclear power and the initiative taken by Nordic institutions and other international centers has made a unique and influential contribution to this crucial research area.
