INES: International Network of Engineers & Scientists

Science for Peace is a Member Organization of INES, which has organized several projects since our last report over a year ago (Bulletin Vol.12, No.1, December 1992).

INESCO: International Network of Engineers and Scientists for Conversion hosted a conference in Tallinn, Estonia, in June 1993, entitled: “Market, Industry, Energy: practical opportunities in Estonia and St. Petersburg for conversion of military industries”.

Science for Peace and INES:

Science for Peace became a Member Organization of INES in the Spring of 1992. We asked our members to contribute financially in order for SfP to become a member of INES. We suggested a contribution to INES of $50 to match the annual membership fee of Science for Peace. Very few members responded, perhaps because it was not clear at that time what INES could accomplish. We submit that INES now has a proven record of achievements and we want to support its initiatives.
