Objectives
    Founded in 1997, the Egyptian Nuclear Physics Association ,a non governmental not-for-profit organization, is to offer scientific and cultural services in the field of Nuclear Physics and Related Activities, namely:
- to follow scientific progress in the field of nuclear physics and related activities, and to enhance the national knowledge in this field.
- to publish a scientific periodical for research and development under the title:
Journal of Nuclear and Radiation Physics
- to suggest and provide services and consultation in its field of activity (FOA).
- adoption of scientific terminology and translation of scientific material into Arabic.
- to issue a popular scientific magazine in Arabic.
- issuing of non periodic publications in Association's FOA.
- to establish a national data base in nuclear physics and related activities.
- conducting conferences, seminars, symposia, workshops, training courses,  exhibitions, cultural events, and so forth in Association's FOA.
- to enhance cooperation between Arab scientists interested in Association's activities aiming to establish
Pan-Arab Nuclear Physics Association.
- to establish regional and international contacts and cooperation with similar organizations.

Activities
Scientific Publications:
     One of the major activities of ENPA is to publish its scientific periodical for research and development under the title "Journal of Nuclear and Radiation Physics (JNRP)". According to its aim and scope, JNRP is a refereed journal devoted to the publication of new and significant research in all fields of nuclear and radiation physics including particle physics, high energy physics, nuclear models and structure, nuclear reactions and spectroscopy, neutron and reactor physics, environmental radiation physics, medical radiation physics, radiation measurement and dosimetry, and other related topics. JNRP has its editorial board along with a distiguished team of national and international scientific advisors. It accepts original, high quality research, review papers, and rapid research communications. Special issues for nuclear and radiation physics conferences are possible. Distribution and readership of JNRP are worldwide.The journal 1st volume appeared on May 2006 and continues regular edition from that time on.

Conferences:
     Other major activity of ENPA is to organize Nuclear and Particle Physics Conference (NUPPAC). The NUPPAC conference is a biennial event dedicated to the progress in experimental and theoretical nuclear and particle physics, and to follow the evolution of the recent developments in these subjects. ENPA had organized four such conferences:
- NUPPAC' 97        in Cairo                   15-19 Nov. 1997
- NUPPAC' 99        in Cairo                   13-17 Nov. 1999
- NUPPAC' 01        in Giza                    20-24 Oct. 2001
- NUPPAC' 03        in El-Fayoum           11-15 Oct. 2003
- NUPPAC' 05        in Cairo                   19-23 Nov. 2005
- NUPPAC' 07        in Luxor                  17-21 Nov. 1997
- NUPPAC' 09        in Sharm El-Sheikh  13-17 Nov. 1999
- NUPPAC' 11        in Hurghada             20-24 Oct. 2001
- NUPPAC' 15        in Luxor-Aswan       11-15 Oct. 2015
- NUPPAC' 17        in Hurghada              7-10 Oct. 2017

ENPA is planning to organize its 11th Conference on Nuclear and Particle Physics  (NUPPAC' 19) 20-23 Oct. 2019.

    Other activity of ENPA is connected with the increasing concern towards environmental problems, and the role physics can do in monitoring, analysing, and understanding environmental phenomena. From this perspective ENPA  had organized a series of Environ,mental Physics Conferences:
- EPC' 04             in El-Minya                24-28 Feb. 2004
- EPC' 06             in Alexandria              18-22 Feb. 2006
- EPC' 08             in Aswan                    20-24 Oct. 2008
- EPC' 10             in Hurghada               10-14 Mar. 2010
- EPC' 12            in Sharm El-Sheikh     24-27 Sep. 2012
- EPC' 14             in Hurghada               20-24 Sep. 2014
- EPC' 16            in Sharm El-Sheikh     24-27 Sep. 2016
- EPC' 18            in Marsa Matrouh       23-26 Sep. 2018

ENPA is planning to organize its 9th Conference on Environmental Physics Conference (EPC' 20) during Sep. 2020.

    ENPA was a co-organizer of the second all african IRPA congress helt in Ismailya, Egypt, 23-27 April 2007.
