  • [487]-1 INRAG MEETING

    Time: February 1st, 2022 at 2 p.mLocation: Vienna BOKU Campus. As explained in pilgrim’s diary No.486, INRAG is a group of private experts who assess nuclear power plant risk. It is an independent and free network that does not depend on the government or any specific force. It is a precious organization in global village. Before I start winter pilgrimage I thought of a meeting with the representative of INRAG, headquartered in Vienna. Actual contact proceeded ten days before the meeting, however, because I needed to tell them exact date of arrival in Vienna. One week before the meeting, I could finalize the meeting on February 1st by Ms. Oda Becker. The German interpretation was commissioned to Korean Students Association in Vienna, and I was able to meet a young man who was a student in Ph.D. program of mechanical engineering. He was an experienced interpreter. I have emailed the following question in advance, because I heard that they are busy even with European work.“Unlike Europe, Northeast Asia and Korea are in a very dangerous state because there is no cross-monitoring of nuclear power plant risks. In Korea, it is… Read More ›
