Use high-quality productions with physical factors used, in particular, of ionizing radiation is based on interdisciplinary fundamental researches at the confluence of physics, biology, medicine, chemistry and etc. That is why, different aspects in use of radiation technologies were involved in the discussion, including fundamental researches of different types of radiation exposure impact on microorganisms, agents of disease, insect pests, plants, animals; norming issues; dosimetry and radiation safety; effectiveness of exposure when treating different kinds of farm and food products; products safety and quality assurance; use of different physical methods and combined technologies to treat farm and food products. Considered possibilities for cooperation will allow to get more opportunities to achieve the shared goals, aimed at scientific and technical development, exchange of knowledge, education and consensus-building in peaceful use of nuclear energy.
