OK - here is a suggestion. Let's have the nuclear industry companies
set up a project with one or more universities. The project will focus
on how to communicate the good news about fission to the user's of
fission. This could perhaps be done at the School of Business at
Carleton. An academic atmosphere could be maintained which would suit
these industries, and this would take them into new areas where frankly
they are now doing a terrible job.
China is doing something like this, though the focus in their case is
First Nuclear Science and Technology School Set up
A Chinese university has set up a nuclear science and technology school
in Harbin, capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.
The Nuclear Science and Technology Institute was recently formed under
the Harbin Engineering University. Sun Yufa, an academician with the
Chinese Research and Development Center of Nuclear Power, was named as
honorary head of the school.
The Harbin Engineering University was the former Military Engineering
Institute of the People's Liberation Army, which was founded in 1953.
The university has been a major base for nuclear science and a training
center for the industry.
The school has opened bachelor degree majors in nuclear reactor
engineering, nuclear chemical and fuel engineering, nuclear technology
application, nuclear radiation protection and environmental engineering
as well as nuclear physics.
The school is expected to take ten years to become an internationally
respected higher-learning institute for its technological innovation
power in nuclear science, and in supplying elite talents to the
country's nuclear industry.
The school has signed all-round cooperation agreements with the China
Nuclear Industry Group, Guangdong Nuclear Power (Group) Co., China
Academy of Engineering Physics, China Shipbuilding Industry (Group) Co.,
and the country's top-notch nuclear science research institutes.
