Associate Professor Engineer Renata Mikołajczak (POLATOM@NCBJ) joined the International Scientific Committee of ARRONAX institute in France. Institute, the name of which is an abbreviation of Accelerator for Research in Radiochemistry and Oncology at Nantes Atlantic possesses a cyclotron with energy up to 70 MeV used mainly for production of strontium-82, as well as germanium-68 and astatine-211. Experience in production of the last of these isotopes can be very valuable for cyclotron CERAD constructed in Świerk. ----
