Consortium is highly recommended. Obviously, the implementation achievements, experiences and outcomes;
would be by volunteer institutes. A similar framework in Brazil helping to locate experts in areas where an institute is unfamiliar
(or in South/Latin America) would contribute greatly to a nuclear with or has little experience of the subject; and
education network through: capturing, sharing and transferring experiences in order to boost the
Brazilian/Latin American nuclear knowledge managing system. n
