ROSATOM's Public Council involves civic organisations in the policy making process for nuclear power utilisation, environmental protection, nuclear and radiation safety. The Council works to:

  • raise public awareness of ROSATOM's core operations

  • involve civic organisations in nuclear policy making

  • encourage a dialogue on nuclear-related issues between academia, industry experts, public officials, environmental groups and prominent figures

  • improve communication with stakeholders

The Council includes scientists, members of civic and environmental organisations, and representatives from ROSATOM, all of whom participate on a voluntary basis.
