Designation Ceremony as an IAEA Collaborating Centre

May 2014, Hiroshima International Council for Health Care of the Radiation-exposed (HICARE) was designated as a collaborating centre (*1) for International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). After National Institute of Radiological Sciences in Chiba, HICARE became the second such collaborating centre in Japan. HICARE, however, is the first consortium to be designated as a collaborating centre by IAEA.
  To mark this occasion, on May 26, 2014, HICARE held a designation ceremony and seminar at the Rihga Royal Hotel in Hiroshima City. (For more details about the seminar, refer to "Enhancement of Public Awareness")
