INRAG is an interdisciplinary expertise network that will facilitate cooperation of its members. It aims to inform and advise decision-makers and organizations of civil society on nuclear matters. It intends to improve the accessibility of authoritative information to the public and to contribute to a higher degree of understandability. It will foster scientific research on nuclear risks and provide a comprehensive knowledge-base on nuclear risks.

Members of the group include academics, former members and heads of nuclear authorities, members of technical support organizations, independent scientists and experts. They work in countries such as Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Sweden, the UK and the USA. The initiative of establishing INRAG originates from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) which is currently its host.
