Head of the Nuclear Science Division of the Organization for Economic and Cooperative Development (OECD) Nuclear Energy Agency
Claes Nordborg was born 1946 in Ystad in the south of Sweden. His academic career started in 1965 at the University of Lund, Sweden, where he obtained an M.Sc. in mathematics and physics in 1969. He then continued with an Engineer exam in physics at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, before he started his Ph.D. studies in neutron physics at the same university, supported by the National Defence Research Institute.
In 1979, Claes moved to Paris, France, to work for the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), an international organization with a mission to assist its Member countries in maintaining and further developing the scientific and technological bases required for the safe, environmentally friendly and economical use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Claes’ initial work at the NEA was mainly devoted to coordinating international efforts in nuclear data measurements and evaluations.
In 1993, he assumed the post as head of the NEA nuclear science division, continuing the international coordination efforts, but now within a larger scientific context.
