"Worthless piece of rock!"
Blackish bothersome rocks that always used to
hinder the pickax of a miner searching for silver.
This was the beginning of uranium, the beginning of 'nuclear power'.
And the two faces of nuclear power we encountered.
A gram of uranium can become a 'miracle' or a 'calamity' to mankind, capable of acting as a savior or a fatal threat.
It is now time to find the 'true face' of nuclear power by shifting our focus from 'rapid growth' to 'mature use'.
Aspiring to achieve nuclear transparency and peaceful use of nuclear power, KINAC is ensuring the peaceful face of nuclear power!
Aims and Objectives of INSA
As demand for nuclear power increases in today's global society, the mission and role of the Republic of Korea as a "model nation for peaceful uses of nuclear power" and "supplier nation of nuclear power plant" is becoming important. Under such situation, role of the Korea Institute of Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Control, KINAC, has become invaluable.
In pursuance to new issues of nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security, and also for international cooperation in securing nuclear transparency,
KINAC, the uniqueKorean institute specializing in nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security, is opening International Nuclear Nonproliferation and Security Academy(INSA), the first Asia-pacific nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security training and education center of excellenceaiming atsharingKorea's experience and expertise in nuclear nonproliferation and security with the world and further strengthening the global system!
At the 2010 Washington Nuclear Security Summit, Korea shared its view with the international community that training of experts who possess the understanding and capability in the latest nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security technology is of utmost importance.
In this regard, Korea has promised to the international community the establishment of INSA, an integrated space of tests, researches, education and training for nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security. Upholding that promise, KINAC has finally established INSA - and a new journey for nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security begins!

Introduction of Key Research Infrastructure
Through the external test facility that is designed identically to the actual environment, INSA will conduct a performance test on nuclear security facilities and equipment along with actual training and education.
External physical protection test facility is located at the training center site and consists of 4 sectors for carrying out tasks involving detection, delay and counter response. The facility will establish itself as a special research and training institute in the Asia Region that can conduct both research & development as well as tests.
INSA will provide diversified training programs, with its Test-Bed, that recreated the physical protection environment of each power plant in the ROK, and central alarm station capable of real-time monitoring, and also with its divers lecture rooms for personnel training.
For peaceful use of nuclear energy in realizing wellbeing of mankind!
KINAC is endeavoring for peace and prosperity of mankind by securing nuclear transparency! Through INSA, as the central institute for international education & training of nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security in Asia-Pacific, KINAC will establish itself as the world's leading institute for education, training and research in nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security.
By making INSA play a role as a leading training facility in the field of nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security,KINAC will remain committed to making the world more peaceful and prosperous.
For the better world, and prosperous future, We, KINAC as a specialized institute in nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security, will do our best to turn up the light for the future with continuous capacity building for contributing to international nuclear transparency and nuclear nonproliferation.
