The AIP is a organisation dedicated to promoting the role of physics in research, education, industry and the community by:
The Australian and New Zealand Society of Nuclear Medicine (ANZSNM) was founded in 1969 and is the major professional society representing those practising Nuclear Medicine in Australia and New Zealand with over 1000 members in over 250 nuclear medicine facilities. The Society includes Physicians/Radiologists, Physicists, Radiopharmaceutical Scientists, Technologists, Nurses and others interested in the practice of Nuclear Medicine. The ANZSNM is the major provider of ongoing education and professional development for its members. To learn more about the work done in Nuclear Medicine in Australia, visit http://www.anzsnm.org.au/
The Centre for Radiation Research, Education, and Innovation (CRREI) is an internationally recognised centre for the advancement of radiation research, education, training, and innovation. CRREI provides state of the art radioanalytical techniques and high throughput services to its stakeholders. It also delivers the Graduate Certificate in Radiation Management, Australia’s on tertiary qualification in radiation protection. CRREI works across many different areas of research interest including mining and mineral processing, environmental monitoring, defence, space, and the medical sector including the development of new radioisotopes. CRREI works closely with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA), the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
The Radiation Safety User Group (RSUG) originated in 1993 as an initiative by Wes Nichols and Byron McKavanagh to fill a gap in information sharing among Radiation Safety Officers (RSO) in Queensland, Australia. Initially named Radiation Safety Officer User Group (RSOUG), the group’s first gathering occurred at Central Queensland University, marking a perceived need for such a platform among industry peers.
Over time, despite periodic hiatuses, RSUG played critical roles in key events, including the planning and implementation of the Radiation Safety Act 1999 and its subsequent Regulations in 2001, and the closure of the Queensland Radiation Monitoring Service in 2007. These events emphasised RSUG’s relevance as a lobby and advisory group consulted by Radiation Health on matters impacting industrial users.
The group has since expanded to include other industrial radiation workers, suppliers, government representatives, and academics, thus evolving to Radiation Safety User Group (RSUG). RSUG continues to be an important voice for industrial radiation safety practices in Queensland.
Women in Nuclear (WiN) Australia Inc. is a chapter of WiN Global, a not-for profit global organisation open to people of all genders working in fields of nuclear and radiological technologies. WiN Australia’s vision is to promote diversity and inclusion in nuclear through networking, advocating for women in nuclear and informing the nuclear discussion. It’s mission is three fold, to support female professionals in the nuclear community through networking, mentoring and role modelling; to amplify the voices of women and bring diversity of other voices into discussions surrounding nuclear technologies; and to contribute to public education on peaceful nuclear technologies by sharing expertise and perspectives, particularly those of women. It is free to join WiN Australia, just sign up on our website.
