Visitors from around the world can take a stroll through a greenhouse with coffee beans more resistant to climate change, dive into a rainforest ecosphere with fruit flies, or see some of the equipment used to verify the peaceful use of nuclear material – all from their ltop , tablet, or phone. To make this possible, 14 virtual tours of the IAEA laboratories have been launched today on our website.

“The IAEA laboratories are a cornerstone of our technical and scientific analysis and program delivery, they are a unique feature in the United Nations’ system,” said Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi, referring to the IAEA laboratories located in Monaco, and in Austria – at Vienna and Seibersdorf.

The laboratories, some of which date back to 1958, can now be virtually visited by anyone interested in getting a better sense of nuclear science and technology for development, and how the IAEA assists countries in using them, and the tools used to verify that nuclear material remains in peaceful use – an activity known as safeguards.

“I am glad to invite everyone to virtually visit our laboratories and look behind the scenes to where the IAEA makes science hpen,” Grossi continued.

Visitors can tour through the different rooms of laboratories used by researchers and technicians in food and agriculture, human health, environmental and radiation monitoring, and safeguards verification equipment.
