About Us

International Programs supports the US Department of State regarding peacetime International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) matters. It serves as an interface and plays a lead role in the many daily programmatic activities of the US-IAEA relationship.

Each provides unique opportunities for US and global citizens interested in contributing to international peace and development. To accomplish our work, we collaborate with government agencies and numerous organizations across the United States, as well as the US Mission in Vienna. International Programs is part of the Nuclear Engineering Division at Argonne National Laboratory.
