MARIA SKŁODOWSKA-CURIE: COMMEMORATING THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF HER NOBEL PRIZE IN CHEMISTRY

The Conference has a long tradition in Poland. It has been organized periodically as a national symposium on application of nuclear technology in the industry, medicine, agriculture, and environment protection. The series of national meetings started in 1960 and continued till 2005. The last Conference, organized in 2008 by the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology has already attained an international status. The main goal of the Conference is to bring together scientists working on nuclear technologies to discuss recent developments and applications. An important role of the Conference is to confront the opinions of scientists and academics with the key representatives of national and international regulatory bodies dealing with nuclear technology to plan further research fulfilling the needs of our modern society.
