Unione degli Scienziati Per Il Disarmo ONLUS (Union of Scientists For
Disarmamannt) is a non-profit association of scientists and researchers
founded in 1982 with the objective of providing information and
analyses on arms control and disarmament, including information on the
environmental impact and human costs of development and dissemination
of arms. USPID members are convinced that this task is a moral
imperative for scientists and that it is part of their social
responsibility. USPID cooperates with the International School on
Disarmament and Research on Conflicts
which since 1966 organizes international higher education courses
(ISODARCO), on international security, arms control and disarmament.
Several members of USPID participate at the Pugwash
Conferences on Science and World Affairs, which was presented with the Nobel Prize for Peace in
1995 together with Sir J. Rotblat.
