She expressed her joy to see this collaboration that has been on the table for quite some time firmed up.

For the most part, GAEC is mandated to carry out research into the peaceful application of nuclear science and technology and its development. The commission is engaged in research, education, and commercialization of its research among others through its institutes which include the Radiological and Medical Sciences Research Institute (RAMSRI). RAMSRI is a medical research institute that employs nuclear and allied techniques to promote human health and nutrition in Ghana.

On the other hand, Africa Environmental Sanitation Consult, a research wing of the Jospong Group of Companies, is mandated to provide sustainable environmental solutions and consultancy services. AfESC undertakes a broad spectrum of research, training, and problem-solving to develop viable solutions for private and public organizations, institutions, and individuals in the environmental sector and beyond.

In summary, this collaboration between GAEC and AfESC is a positive step towards advancing research in critical areas that will have a significant impact on the lives of Ghanaians and beyond. The MoU will foster greater collaboration between the two research institutions and provide innovative solutions to some of the most pressing issues in health, nuclear medicine, environment, and sanitation.
