NTI and IPNDV featured at 2017 European Safeguards Research & Development Association Symposium
Martin Rioux-Lefebvre, senior program officer in NTI’s Nuclear
Materials and Minimization program, delivered a keynote address on the International Partnership for Nuclear
Disarmament Verification (IPNDV) to
the 39th Annual Meeting of the European Safeguards Research & Development
Association (ESARDA) in Düsseldorf,
Germany this week.
Rioux-Lefebvre’s presentation focused the history,
structure and ongoing activities of the IPNDV, a public-private partnership
between the U.S. State Department and NTI which brings together nuclear and
non-nuclear weapon states to develop new procedures and concepts and to identify
necessary technologies for monitoring and verifying nuclear weapons disarmament.
The partnership’s first phase of work is addressing the most important, complex
and challenging topic related to future arms control reductions: monitoring and
verifying the physical dismantlement of a nuclear warhead.
Corey Hinderstein, an NTI vice president currently on leave to serve as Senior Coordinator for Nuclear
Security and Nonproliferation Policy at the U.S. Department of Energy’s
National Nuclear Security Administration, also addressed the plenary about the role
of the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management.
ESARDA brings together European organizations involved in the research and development
of nuclear safeguards. Its annual meeting gathers leading professionals to
discuss their research and recent developments in the field.
