The Scientific Committee of the Namibian Uranium Association comprises of members who are distinguished scientific professionals active in Namibia, and are appointed by the Executive Director of the Namibian Uranium Institute in consultation with the Board of Trustees of the Namibian Uranium Association for a two-year period. These scientists guide the Namibian Uranium Institute on scientific and training matters, including, but not limited to, the fields of radiation protection, the environment and its sustainable management, occupational health and safety, and raising awareness on the afore-mentioned topics.
