The European Union (EU) and India will collaborate in atomic energy research, EuAsiaNews reported on Saturday.

The EU transport, telecommunication and energy ministers, after a meeting in Luxembourg Friday, allowed the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) to sign a cooperation agreement with India in this regard, the report said.

The main objective of the agreement is to intensify cooperation between the two sides to develop scientific understanding in the field of fusion energy system.

It includes exchange of information on scientific and technical activities, interactions between scientists and engineers as well as organising seminars on the subject.

Euratom was set up in 1957 to contribute in the development of Europe's nuclear industries for future energy security.

The organisation is mandated to promote nuclear energy for peaceful civilian purposes. It also seeks to partner with other countries in the endeavour.
