    MOSCOW, RUSSIA — The Center for Energy and Security Studies is a Moscow-based independent, non-governmental think tank, established in 2008. This project will identify next steps for Russia to address conversion of its research reactors from Highly Enriched Uranium fuel to Low Enriched Uranium fuel; fuel-leasing mechanisms for newcomer states to nuclear energy; and plutonium disposition in Russia. Funds would be used for partial staff salaries, travel, meetings and workshops, and publication of reports. This grant supports the Foundation's Nuclear Security Strategy, which aims to incorporate approaches into the global nuclear fuel cycle that prevent access to fissile materials and limit their production.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Center for Energy and Security Studies $400,000 between 2003 and 2014.
