Representatives of five Serbian ministries and 20 academic research institutions and institutes signed on July 10 a Memorandum of Understanding in the field of nuclear energy development in Serbia.

Representatives of the Ministry of Mining and Energy, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Science, Technological Development and Innovation signed the memorandum at the Palace of Serbia together with  representatives of  Elektroprivreda Srbije (EPS) power utility, Elektromreze Srbije, the power grid corporation, the Nuclear Facilities of Serbia, the Institute of Physics, the Vinca Institute, and 12 faculties offering economic, medical and technical research programs.

The signing ceremony was attended by Serbian Prime Minister Milos Vucevic, who underlined d that the memorandum was the beginning of correcting the historical mistake made in 1979, when the state banned the use of nuclear energy for peacetime purposes, adding this was a good opportunity for Serbia. Vucevic stressed that the possibility of using nuclear energy in peacetime should not be politicized, but considered from a professional point view.

"No one doubts that electrical energy is a dominant, strategic, and geopolitical issue. Investing in this field is also a matter of the economy, sovereignty and independence of a state," Vucevic stated.
