The Ankara Nuclear Research and Training Center, known as ANAEM, is a nuclear research and training center of Turkey. The organization was established on August 18, 2010 as a subunit of Turkish Atomic Energy Administration (Turkish: Türkiye Atom Enerjisi Kurumu, TAEK) in its campus at Ankara University's Faculty of Science situated in BeÅevler neighborhood in central Ankara. The organization consists of three divisions, which are engaged in education, training and public relations on nuclear matters.
